Happiness is cross stitching blog

Project bag finally made it to the shop and more Just Nan cross stitch items.

Hi everyone, I have finally managed to finish a project bag set and put it in my shop!

This week I have been doing a bit of sewing on project bags and notions pouches, I played around with my fabric and decided to make this little Paris gift set, of course I made two, one for me and one for my Etsy shop. There is only one of these at the moment, I have enough fabric to make two more.
The bag is interfaced with medium weight interfacing and the scissor and notions pouches are lined with fusible fleece.

Cross stitch 

The only problem with sewing project bags I have not had chance to do any cross stitching this week, I really need to remedy that! My Just Nan range is expanding a little so at least I get to drool over nice things! In addition to the Bunny Biscornu and Spring Mouse in the House I have on order some very cute needle slides, they are cute metal tins with  a magnet for your needles, I also have the gorgeous Just Nan Bellemeade design in my shop…..  SOLD
I sooooo want to stitch this! It has the pattern for the cute needlebook and the embellishments all included but no fabric or threads, they need to be purchased separately. 
Until next time, happy stitching! 
Best Wishes and Happy Stitching.

    Very pretty. 🙂 Most of my projects are living in plastic bags from the grocery store….a few live in those big zip bags that can store lots of stuff….and the rest are living the high life in baskets here and there through out my house. Wishing you a most lovely day. 🙂

    I need more project bags like I need another hole in my head. BUT, I have been following your blog for years. You have inspired me. Plus, I took my first trip to Paris this past summer and fell in love with that city. Soooo- I had to have the bags.
    Thanks, Lynn. I can't wait to get them.

    The project bag looks marvelous!

    Is the JN called Common Ground (ugh – memory not working well enough today)? This is one I've been sorely tempted by whenever I see it, it's so pretty – I really love her animals. Oooh, and that needlebook is delightful.
