Embroiderers Companions

I love to stitch little things for stitcher's, so here are my latest creations ready to go in my Etsy shop.

I always stitch where ever I go so it,s nice to have a little set of my needfuls to quickly pick up.

                                           First my hoop, all ready to go in its own pocket.

There's a place on the back for scissors, they are held in with a button and a loop.
The pocket holds a 6 1/2 " hoop just the right size for work on the move.

                                    The matching sewing roll has all those essential notions.

                              Pockets for a pack of needles and  buttons, a needle case
                             and a place to store your markers and stitch removers.

                                 Next a roll to hold your threads, neat and tidy, ready to use.


                                              The flaps hold everything in place.....


                                        and, to complete the set, a wrist pin cushion...

The band is held in place with'Velcro' for a comfy fit.

                                      The whole collection fits into this handy  matching bag....

it has a magnetic clasp and a pocket for your mobile phone.

                                           I've made a set in red too with lots of hand embroidery.

                       This is the scissor pocket...

                       I love this fabric, and I've picked out the design to use on the stitched panel.

                                              Did you see the covered button ??

                            Inside has pockets and a place to hold your stitch ripper ....

                                        ....lots of pretty hand embroidery on the needle case too.

  I'm just off to list these in my Etsy shop but wanted to tell you about my new venture.
 For the next three years I will be studying full time for a BA Hons in Interior Textiles and Surface design. I am really excited to be doing this and will be a very mature student. But, for the first time for many many years, I have the freedom to start something like this.
I am told that my work will change during this process and I will be pushed out of my comfort zone, that's great although I may have a little grumble to my blogging friends, but also I hope to share with you all my ups and downs so watch this space.

                                                                        xox Angela.
