Leftovers And Seam Binding ..

Hello my dear friends,

since a shirt doesn't just have one shirt cuff but two I could not let the second cuff not become a needle book too and since a shirt has more fabric to it than just two sleeves with a cuff each ... do you get the idea? I haven't quite finished the second needle book just yet but I have finished two other new creations.

I have been busy creating from the blue shirt this past weekend apart from trying to declutter my fabric chest and tidy my studio. I have also learnt something new ~ my post from yesterday ~ which was my variation of silk ribbon embroidery ... namely ... seam binding embroidery.

Combining the leftovers and seaming embroidery together I created these ...

... two new scissor pouches.
(Yet again many photos but very few words)



I hope you like my latest creations ~ they were so much fun to make.
And if you ask me .. did I stop there? ... No, no I didn't ~ but that is all I am going to say for today.
OK ..., maybe a little hint about my next creation ...
... velvet, rose pink and beautiful.
Has this intrigued you at all?
Well, then you know what to do if you have a spare moment ~ come and visit me here at Todolwen soon again.
I hope you are well my dear friends and life is treating you kind.
Have a peaceful and creative day,
Karen B.
