A soft cloth bowl for your stuff, a tree for your treasures. I originally created this pattern for a game of leprechaun toss, but my leprechaun ‘houses’ were quickly stolen for many other purposes, first a hat, then a bed for Totoro and other animals, and a place to store treasures. I am thinking of stealing one back to hold table napkins in the autumn. These would be great for decorating a woodland themed party, or a child’s room. Who doesn’t need another soft bucket for storing treasures?
