Tin Can Carrier - a free pattern from Shiny Happy World

This is SUCH a fun project! There’s a pineapple juice can in there, so any rocks (or other hard things) collected land with a very satisfying thunk. My daughter loved this thing when she was little. 😁

This little felt bird is so beautiful! And super easy to stitch!
