Just stitch!

Every Autumn I like to design new gifts for stitcher's ready for my Christmas Fairs. I'm really loving the soft feminine floral fabrics that are in the shops.
How about this for your sewing friends.

I've hand embroidered the centre panel in pretty shades of thread.

The cover has different strips of fabric.

Inside are pockets to hold all you need.

A pocket for scissors made from a vintage handkerchief which has been hand embroidered

A pocket for pens, a needlekeep and a pocket for buttons.

Here's space for a little notepad and a pocket for threads.

and here's Rosie a little doll who loves to wear pretty clothes,

xox Angela.

Hi Angela, oops! Seems like I missed this post. Gosh! The days sure get away from me at times. your little stitch keeper sure is pretty. I need a bunch of these for all areas of my life. Ha! I feel so disorganized most of the time. Hope you had a lovely time at your friend's shop. I'm sure everyone enjoyed the scones. Best wishes for a great weekend. Tammy
