Hi everyone, the bees have landed! Don’t you just love bees? I do, especially on fabric.
I have been quite busy this last few weeks doing various projects, the first was a gift I sent to a blogging friend, it hasn’t arrived yet so I can’t show it until it arrives at its destination.
I just want to say thankyou to all the people that requested the pattern for Miss Mini Loves to Shop, she was a real hit! Apologies to those that have not heard back from me, quite a few people do not know they are no-reply bloggers, which means I have no way of contacting you. I always reply to emails, if you have not heard from me please send me your email address and I will send you the pattern.
A few months ago I completed a Harry Potter project bag, you can read about it in this post here
if you missed it, but I loved stitching it so much I had to make another, so I stitched Hermione Granger.
Now I hate to admit this, but I have never read the books or watched the films so I don’t really know much about the characters except she looks so cute designed into this cross stitch and I could not resist her, it was a freebie I got from the internet, it is not one of my designs.
I will be making her into, yes you guessed it, a project bag!
The bees have landed!
I purchased this lovely bee fabric in London in April and made it into this notions pouch with a lace zip and faux suede tassel, I am really happy with this notions pouch, I am going to make a project bag to match of course. I made the bee charms into progress keepers and stitch markers, they are available in my Etsy shop, they are very cute.
For many years I have wanted to stitch some blackwork, I finally got around to doing some in this project but I stitched it in blue silk instead of black, its not finished yet but it is not very big and should be a quick stitch.
I am calling this my designer range of bags because it has the extra touches which makes it a bit special, I will also be making a matching project bag for this in the next few days.
The bag and some of the bee charms are available in my Etsy shop from today.
This fabric is gorgeous!
Here she is……….
Hermione Granger from Harry Potter
I love her!
Until next time, happy stitching!
Best Wishes and Happy Stitching.
