I wanted a pocket to keep my embroidery hoop and a small pair of scissors, along with storage for needles and thread that are handy when I'm travelling.
My friends at Dotty Dolly gave me a gift of five fat eights of lovely red Moda Fabric which just called out to be something special.
First a pocket for my hoop. I picked up the design on the fabric to use in the embroidered panel. The flowers are formed with Bullion Knots, French Knots and tiny seed beads.
The bag is lined and has a pleated ruffle along the top.
On the back is a place to keep a small pair of scissors held in with a covered button and loop.
stitchery and fussy cut the fabric for the covered button.
a real chance to play with stitches here......
I'm working on the patterns for these and more sewing treasures to put in my Etsy shop soon.
Meanwhile, at long last the sun is shining and the sky is blue so I'm enjoying some spectacular walks. After a long wet Winter it's a real joy to be outdoors.
Have a great weekend.
