All Folded Up!

Being a Member of Daisychain's Quarterly Craft Club I am always eager to receive Sue's parcels and couldn't wait to make this latest project, which is a Folder using a lovely range of Stof fabrics.

Waiting for the sun to shine following torrential rain so I could take this photograph of my finished Folder.  The cord was made using 4 lengths of 6 stranded embroidery thread and looped around a sweet heart shaped wooden button.

This shows Panel 1 and you may be able to see from Sue's pattern that it is meant to hold a note book, but I thought a pocket would be more useful for storage of fabrics for a current project.

The centre Panel holds my ruler, scissors, rotary cutter and a small pocket for bits and bobs.  Perhaps I should mention that the inside fabric is Osnaburg.  You will see the delightful little wooden buttons,which include hearts, thimble, spools and tape measure.

Panel 3 holds my A4 cutting mat.
Well, I'm All Folded Up and heading to my sewing group on Monday.

Chateau Hexagon

Sampler Block
(a little alphabet sampler style)
Month 2

I'm happier with the result of this block having used my Pigma pen for transferring the design and just love the Flower Button.  Each little block measure 10 1/2" x 6 1/2".

Looking forward to Month 3
