This week I've been finishing these little embroidery needlecases, or I suppose embroidery cases, as I've been dreaming of adding in pockets they could include for little scissors, threads, etc. Maybe my next batch will have those.
This lot of ten is to take along to the next Craft 2.0 fair, which will be at the St James Theatre in downtown Wellington on November 3rd. I really enjoy making them, but they do take me a succession of evenings- first I cut them out, then embroider them, lastly machine sew them together. Then another week of evenings to handsew the fasteners on, etc.
This time I felt like doing some geometrical, sampler-style embroidery. I'm not a very geometrical person, so there are some rather wonky crosses and dashes. That's the way I like it though.
