Smalls SAL - February

Hello Everyone,

Another month at an end and lots of stitching and unstitching done these last couple of weeks on various projects for Easter.  I´ve been busy due to our rotten cold rainy weather but only have the smallest of Smalls completely finished for our check-in with Heather at Stitching Lotus today.



I saw this hanging scissor pouch in one of my needlework magazines and thought it might be fun to make as a future gift and to use my newly acquired 32ct. Zweigart linen and scraps of fabric from stash.





Incomprehensibly, the magazine only includes the cross stitch pattern of the rose and therefore the enticing design of the pouch is supposedly left up to each individual´s aptitude - go figure.



It turned out well enough although I would have preferred a thicker batting and after adding a length of chain and a charm, I only now need some decent new scissors.



I´m off to see what everyone else has been sewing this month.  Until next week.
Sheryl

  10. Your scissors pouch is beautiful! I agree it's odd the magazine didn't include instructions for the finished item, but clearly that didn't even slow you down.
