I've been mixing up 2 of my favourite Australian designers for this project! The pattern is Just Sew, from the book Patchwork Loves Embroidery Too by Gail Pan Designs. I'd made one of these sewing folders last week in a different colourway and this time the fabrics are from the One Stitch at a Time collection by Lynette Anderson Designs...
...the stitchery design was hand embroidered using a variegated Valdani perle thread from Cross Patch, in a colour to match the fabrics. Very simple stitches were used - back stitch, lazy daisy stitch, running stitch and colonial knots. One of my vintage buttons was used for the fastening...
...inside the sewing folder there are 2 really useful zippered vinyl pockets. I used a few scraps from the same collection of fabrics for the binding around the vinyl and zippers and co-ordinated the colours of the zippers too. It's always good to have a supply of gifts for my sewing friends, so this will be tucked away with a few other sewing-related handmade goodies.
Hi - welcome to my quilting blog! My passions are my family, my dog, my friends and sewing, not necessarily in that order!
