Since the coronavirus lockdown I seem to stay indoors much more than before the virus shook the world. I have been sorting through old stitcheries, mainly finished ones but abandoned to my Dreaded Drawer when for one reason or another, their plannned destiny was aborted.
Discovering two small compact mirrors embroidered years ago, maybe five and still wrapped in plastic, I thought that with a pretty zipper holder they would make nice gifts for Christmas.
I made the two holders at the same time, both are lined and hopefully enhance each Hardanger design.
I wanted to add a detail in the lower corner of the holders and was intrigued with how Malina GM embroidered a sunflower on youtube, so I had a go at doing some petals - I didn´t want a sunflower, just petals and a center point and well, you can see in what my ameteur efforts resulted, an unidentifiable blue specimen.
and then just two inches of scrap fabric served to complete a tiny scissor fob while watching tv.
I found a pretty pink lacey zip in my stash for the pink holder and some striped fabric for the lining.
And added a rose design, using applique this time
Another little scissor fob to match the Hardanger
and I had a lot of fun making something pretty to protect the compact mirrors instead of being saved wrapped in plastic
Thank you for stopping by and looking.
