Happiness is cross stitching blog

A project bag with cross stitch and a bit of crochet

Hi everyone, I finished this little cross stitch a while ago, it is a Prairie Schooler design and I love it!

I decided to finish it into this project bag set for my Etsy shop but this one is now sold, however, I am making more items for my shop update for next Thursday 29th June at 7pm  UK time, 8pm Paris time. I have made some lavender crochet sachets and some vintage linen sachets, some pretty little pin cushions made with Tilda fabric and I hoping to make some more project bag sets.

You can take a sneak peek at some of the items  I have been making in the photos below.

My Soul is Fed with Needle and Thread pattern
I am so glad you liked my free pattern, if you have not received a reply it is because your email is set as ‘no reply’ which means I could not reply to your email because of your settings.

Rain Rain Go Away
There will not be another bag like this, they are quite labour intensive due to the cross stitch involved but I enjoyed making this one so much and was thrilled that it is going to a lady who crafts herself, which I think is nice! 
This is the matching scissor pouch
This is the little pin cushion 
Here are the lavender filled crochet sachets I have lovingly made, the colours are so vibrant.
They are made from 100% cotton yarn and have a vintage linen pillow inside filled with lavender, finished with a ‘hand made’ little wooden label on the corner.  
Until next time, happy stitching!

Best Wishes and Happy Stitching.

    Your project bag along with the scissors pouch and pin cushion are very sweet! The lady who receives this is one lucky lady!
    I've ever seen crochet sachets made like this before! Very nice!

    Lynn, I just love your project bags. The stitched piece, Rain, Rain, fits perfectly with the bag fabric you used.

    I read your comment about replying about the My Soul is Fed with Needle and Thread pattern. I never received any reply from you, and as far as I know my settings are set properly. I have looked and don't see any settings on your page and I don't have a blog page of my own. I always receive the e-mail notices of your updates here, and previously received something from you.

    BTW, your crochet sachets are cute. Would make great gifts for that person "who has everything".

    I can't even imagine how much time is spent making these beautiful project bag sets, Lynn, they are absolutely gorgeous! I love your crochet sachets too and the little button charm is delightful.

    Great projects Lynn – you are truly an amazing stitcher. Your little wooden labels on the sachets are the perfect finishing touch. I found the Hands on Design for the monthly pillows – could not belive how much Fat Quarter Shop wanted for just the pattern! I think it is a pattern I should be able to graph out myself! Hope you have a good stitching weekend!
