Sweet little pretties, little embroidery swap (part 1)

Hi everyone

As you all know, I've been taking part in some swaps recently :)
This one was run by Lisa from

Here is the item I made for my partner of this swap...

The embroidery design is my own (yep! I designed it and hopefully one day soon I'll get my but into gear and organise myself enough to write up a pattern and release it for sale :D)

I've used cotton fabric, the red/white/black fabric was found in my MIL's stash (and I nicked it :P), the black was bought from spotlight; the lace was bought from a local op shop; and I used a lace zip to finish the item off.

I decided to turn my embroidery piece into a zipper pouch so that it would be useful for my partner (I hate when the things I make end up sitting on a shelf because they are "to good to use" - mum,  grandma, yes this comment is aimed at you :P).

My partners favourite colour combination was Red/Kraft/ do you think I did? :)

My partner has received her embroidery piece...
Thankyou so much for my little pouch, I love it and I have a thing for pouches too!!
It's perfect in colours, your needlework is wonderful."

I'm so glad you liked it Sonia :)

Through being prepared and enlightened, you should be well on your way to choosing art that will not only tie your space together... but it will make you feel that you belong to a place that is positively reflective of you. flag patches for backpacks
