Smalls SAL - January

Hi Everyone,

Our first check-in to the Smalls SAL this year is with Mary from Mary´s Thread as our new hostess.
I am pleased that this group is to continue after Heather from Stitching Lotus made it a popular monthly no stress stitching group during years and wish Mary every success in taking over the group.

I chose to make a small credit-card holder this month and use one of the many metal purse frames that I ordered years ago and are still knocking about.



A small piece of fabric from stash, a couple of bullion stitch roses, lazy daisy and fishbone stitch leaves and stem stitch.



some contrasting fabric to hold the cards.



and the metal purse frame.



I´m not sure if I shall use this but it will make a useful gift, the first in my gift box this year.

Thank you for looking.
Sheryl

  5. This credit card holder is so beautiful; one might even use it to hold those little packets of one's favorite tea when they are out and about. Your hand embroidery is as pretty as can be! What a perfect gift for someone special to receive.

  16. Absolutely gorgeous Sheryl! What a clever idea, with the accordion inside to hold cards. Would make a lovely needle package holder too, with a needle pack in each slot instead of a credit card. Your bullion roses are so pretty and plump and your finishing is exquisite :)

  17. Oh, it’s beautiful Sheryl! I’d love a wallet like that!
    That fabric really lent itself to your stitching. (Was the red fabric lined?)
    I can just imagine paying for my cottons in the sewing shop, and the admiring glances of fellow shoppers as they saw my wallet! Just saying, if I made a wallet like that, I’d want to use it myself.
    Well done Sheryl
    Hugs,
    Barbara xx

    1. Hi Barbara, the red fabric is double with interfacing in the middle to make it stiff.

  27. Oh wow, I love this! The fabric and stitching go so perfectly together.

  28. Oh, I love this idea. Love love love! This is approximately how I store my cards but nowhere near as beautiful. When you made the "accordions" to hold the cards, is it just very stiff fabric (like upholstery) or is it over cardboard...? I will have to watch for tiny purse clasps like that.

    1. Hi Rosey, I cut the pleated red fabric double its required length, folded it in half and with interfacing in the middle, sewed round leaving a gap and then turned it inside out.
