Covered in Stitches Entry: SNEAK PEEK

This months stitchalong with Feeling Stitchy is calling my name, but alas the other projects have superseded it and I’m going to have to pass on this one. If you want to try your hand at some embroidery with felt applique, this is a great beginners project with a super tutorial.

 

That said, this is project number one: my son’s teacher is retiring and I blogged about this last week. I had wanted to take all the kid’s names and make a frame around this cute little pattern from Wee Wonderful’s but I couldn’t get the names to line up right. My second idea was to sew some notebook paper…and I love it! I am going to stitch all the kid’s names on the paper and this will be the backside of the totebag.

The flower fabric will be the front panel, with the little Wee Wonderful kids reading stitched onto the front. The geometric print will be the inside lining.

 

On another note, my little red traveling thread box was getting out of hand with all the hoops I have going right now. I ended up having to use some little snack bags to organize all my project threads. How do you keep all your threads together if you have more than one project going?

happy stitching!
