I know - I've made another one! This pattern - Stutching Makes my Heart Happy, by Gail Pan Designs, is a super folder for storing 24 skeins of Cottage Garden Threads. I carried on a theme using a selection of fabrics from the One Stitch at a Time collection, by Lynette Anderson Designs, which were bought as a few fat quarters from Poppy Patch along with some jumbo ric-rac trimming...
...this one has also been hand embroidered using a variegated Valdani perle thread thread, this time I've used shade O537 - this was part of the Rainbow Collection, bought from Cross Patch. A fe more vitage buttons were picked from my button jar, and were sttiched in place on the front of the folder. A ring of hand quilting with a plain ecru DMC perle thread was sttiched around the appliqued circle...
...inside there are 24 fabric pockets to store these gorgeous variegated, hand dyed Cottage Garden Threads in a variety of colours, each skein neatly stored in it's own pocket...
...smart fabric ties are used to fasten the folder, and a neat row of topstich in a matching colour is machined along the edge to finish it off. I've nearly rehomed all of my CTG collection! Thankfully I still have some fabrics and buttons left to make one or two more of these fabulous folders.
