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.


  1. Oh My, does that come in room size! Ha! ha!!

    So pretty and practical!

  2. Having seen this in real life I can confirm that it is a beautiful piece of work, the fabrics are lovely and Carol has done a wonderful job of making the folder

  3. Nice work, Carol! What a handy way to keep all of your sewing things together, and even your cutting mat. Love it! (And wishing I had one, too. LOL)

  4. Love everything about this case from the fabrics and tape measure tape to the cute buttons.
    It is so beautifully made and how useful to have something that holds the smallest cutting mat.
