Smalls SAL June - glasses case

Hello everyone,
I wasn´t sure whether my little crinoline lady made for this month´s Smalls SAL was valid or not as it is more applique work than embroidery.

  I started out with just an outline to embroider and thought that perhaps I´d add a piece of fabric for the dress but somehow it turned out all applique.

I decided to make the design into a glasses case and chose a red  fabric from my stash and used  a metal bag clasp and some beads to decorate.

and I made the inside lining with red velvet.

I think I needed to do a bit of sewing after all the cross stitching I did this month on the Randje per week thingy (seen in my last post) but my next Smalls SAL project will be just embroidery again. If you would like to stitch a little design each month, consider joining this SAL hosted by Heather at Stitching Lotus ...see sidebar button.

A very big thank you to all blogger buddies who have sent me kind comments, thoughts and wishes regarding my sprained ankle.  I hope this small set back will teach me to look where I´m going. ´cause you all know it is not easy to sit resting your leg with embroidery in hand all day long while watching DH vacuuming, washing-up, watering plants, making beds, etc. ¿¿
