I can always find some use for these kinds of envelopes or fabric folders. Carrying a notebook and pencils, a book that you like to read with you or maybe using it as a project bag. Have you heard of those? These are just any types of pouches or bags that you keep the project you are working on inside. Such a brilliant idea! I have just finished two project bags that I am already using for my knitting projects. Yep, I am knitting again.
When all the flying geese were finished, I really liked how these colourful triangles looked all together on linen. I had a moment of hesitation and was thinking of turning this patchwork into a mini. But I am so glad that I went with my original plan, because a mini is just a hanging on a wall. Right? You can only see it when you are nearby. But this fabric envelope can be anywhere - in my bag (well, it's still a nappy bag really), on a shelf, table, bedside table... Anywhere I choose to do a bit of sewing or knitting or reading. Depends on what I am going to keep inside.
I used the tutorial that was written a while back for the envelope. If you would like to make one, you can find the tutorial here. I kind of like that I can use my own tutorials, because even though I keep stitching notes as I go, I tend to still lose them sometimes. But once a tutorial is written and published, I can access it any time anywhere.
Just a sneak peek at the process behind the scenes. All the geese were put together in blocks of four and then stitched all together. I had a couple of messed up blocks, and one of them I turned into a small zipper pouch that I showed you earlier. Nothing gets wasted here.
Happy sewing everybody! Thank you for visiting! Larisa xox
