David in the pouch made by my friend

The story of the pouch:
The cream pouch was the smallest of the ones I have made because I only had a small amount of the yarn. I was sent a sample of 100% spun silk from "Sarah's yarns". I thought it was one of the softest and loveliest fibers I have worked with. I could not think of anything softer to put against a tiny baby's fragile skin and it seemed that if a mother was only going to be able to wrap her baby up one time, it should be in one of the softest and most luxurious fibers God makes and I could not think of a more deserving project that for a child living in heaven. So I made the pouch with every bit of the silk yarn I had, and that is the size it came to. I guess God knew just how much silk I would need.
