I actually have a couple of finishes to share today, so I´m joining Rachel at Ten Hour Stitcher for the Fully Finished Gallery SAL check-in. This SAL encourages us to completely finish any stitching project that we might have hidden away - and I have quite a few.
As DH was away during the weekend, I spent all the time I fancied sewing and chose to do something with two tiny cross stitch patterns
Firstly I found some fabric which I wanted to use, bought sometime last year when I was enthusiastic about making a free motion quilted something or other which never materialized. This time I had in mind a cosmetic bag.
and had fun adding some stitching, a pretty piece of trim and some beads. Then I added tabs to the zip.
and a flowery fabric for the lining.
While still with the same fabrics on hand, I tackled the second pattern which only differs in floss colour.
and did some top stitching around the cross stitch and found some pretty lace scraps
I wasn´t sure how to close the pocket and didn´t have another suitable zip, so I just added a button
I love how this has turned out and am pleased that two little designs have been fully finished into something useful.
The Victorian Language of Flowers chart offered in my last post was claimed by June of Butterfly Wings and will be sent off this week.
