Hello everyone, hope that you are all having a good week, back to normality this week which has been good fun though I do miss my craft room,especially when it is now looking so lovely and coordinated!
I have just finished making some more handmade gifts, the first one for me and also some for my lovely sister-in-law Amanda, it is ok as she doesn’t read my blog so won’t know what I have made her for Christmas 😉
The stitching designs for all three pieces come from the lovely Jenny of Elefantz and can be found in her Craftsy shop.
The hexi flower stitch design is a freebie and I had just enough of the lovely Cath Kidston style fabric to make this gorgeous little needlecase.
I am very pleased as this was the first time I had ever done lazy daisy stitch.
The needlecase is lined with a white on white print and has a layer of wadding in between and felt for the needle storage.
I also used the decorative stitches on my new machine to quilt the back part.
For Amanda’s presents I used Jenny’s Stitchin Machine and Stitch in Time designs, I have already used the full Stitch in Time one for the paper piecing case for my Mum but just used part of it to make a cute little scissor pillow.
I have used some gorgeous variegated thread to stitch these as I thought it went really well with the fabric. It is called Cottage Garden Threads, this colour is 601 Tulip. They are an Australian brand and I got them from Quilted Hearts.
The lovely sewing notions print is one that I got from Simply Solids last year and made Amanda’s sewing case out of which I have put pictures of below.
I was lucky enough to find the last fat quarter of this print there last weekend so have some more of it for future gifts 🙂
I really love these stitching designs from Jenny and am planning to do them again for me as a wall hanging for my craft room – they will look wonderful next to my new sewing machine themed wall rack!
Have a lovely rest of the week, see you all soon and thanks for visiting.
