I made a small gift for myself. Selfish, I know, but this is something I really need. Take along stitching/sewing kit/folder. I could not wait to test my newest creation and was totally and absolutely happy with the outcome. The folder is firm enough to hold its shape so I can easily carry it in my bag. There are enough pockets for all the supplies I might need while working on my small projects and it's very cute thanks to Woodland Walk fabric by Belle & Boo.
I have to admit that it took me a while to find two matching fabrics for this print. I had many combinations to choose from but I am happy I stopped on the lilac and check ones. Have you noticed the matching pincushion? It can be easily detached when needed. There are a few pockets for embroidery floss and bobbins and some other small accessories. Do you like the pocket for scissors with a snap flap? I love the tiny deer and the hugging friends.
The folder has a pocket for a small notebook for notes and sketches. There is a space for a pencils or a special fabric pen. I added a loop lock for the embroidery hoop so it won't slip out of the pocket, and of course there are plenty of little pretties.
The stitching of the tree stump and the sleeping bunny is from a sketch I made a way back while working on illustrations for poems written by my Mum. It was a poem about forest creatures falling asleep at night. I thought it would be a lovely match for the Woodland Walk fabric.
So now I have my very own stitching folder that I can take with me anywhere I go. The padded cover of the folder works as a working mat as well and can be used on my knees or on the dining table. Hope you too have some cute accessories that make your creative process even more enjoyable. Happy stitching everybody!
