So since it is the last week of the Blog Tour to feature my fabric collection, Coming Up Roses, I decided to whip up something new and fun. I have been wanting to do this project for a while now.
I needed something to put all my stitching supplies in-- to make it easy to grab when you are stitching on a binding or working on applique, etc.
I wanted it to be round, so that my Poke-A-Dots would fit nicely. And besides that, it is just a really cute shape! I'm calling this little tote a Stitchery-Do. The pattern will be available on my website next week.
I put a little pin-cushion into the lid, and a few pockets to hold small scissors, needles, thread, threader, etc. This little tote is not big--but just right for keeping all those stitching items together in one place.
After I made three of these, one in each of the main print colorways, I decided I needed to make one using selvages. I love selvage projects!!
I love selvages from lots of different designers--the more the merrier! But for this project, I just used selvages from my Penny Rose fabrics. I wanted to focus on that, and after all, it is a really small project, anyway.
Coming Up Roses is my second collection with Penny Rose Fabrics. I have a new collection coming out in October, so I was able to put in a few of the selvages from This & That, too. And my first collection, Meadow Sweets is also in there. So this is like a "journal" of my collections so far. A fun idea for me.
