I am late posting my OPAM pictures for March. I worked on several things, but only completely finished 3. Here they are:
This is a project bag I made for De's Birthday. I love this pattern, such a nice size for a stitchery project! I found the teddy fabric when De and I went to Tassie in 2012, so it is special to me. I added two pockets inside, because a girl can't have too many pockets...
Back in January, I was the winner on Melody's blog for her giveaway called Tuesday Treasures.
Melody sent a pattern, fabric, linen, wool, and a doily. The pattern is called Miss Melly's Sewing Pocket.
I made the sweet little needlecase. Here is the front.
Left to right, scissor pocket, wool for needles, and large pocket perfect for apple cores or hexies.
This isn't on the pattern, but I added two pockets under the wool, perfect size for dmc.
Thank you Melody, this pattern was a pleasure to make. Love the gorgeous fabrics you sent.
I see my big pocket is a little wonky...oh well. It looks better in person LOL.
A few years back, I found this tutorial for how to make a fabric box here
I've made a few in the past, but I was wondering what size it would turn out to be if I used a whole fat quarter instead of cutting it down to the measurements given.
I also wanted a place to store my charm packs, jelly rolls, and other pre cuts that was more space effective than wicker baskets. The fabric is pale pink cabbage roses and matching dots for binding.
On my last post, I asked advice about my Bareroots stitchery , should it be a pillow (as on the pattern), or a wall hanging. Thanks for all the replies, and it will be a wallhanging.
I needed to stitch the windows, door, bees, and all those French Knots. Stitching is done now. MKR= stitching time :) Someday I will have a nicer camera that shows the colours better!
I have chosen the lacey fabric for the borders and the stripe for the binding. Won't be long now!
How is your stitching going? xx debbie
