Hi friends! I’m excited about this post because I get to share with you my latest creation that was specifically made for my hand sewing projects. While I didn’t get much of the actual stitching done on my cross stitch, I was able to complete my Portable Portfolio by The Creative Thimble. I’ve been carrying around my project in a vanilla folder and zip lock baggie. The pattern, along with the fabric, was purchased at the International Quilt Festival last year and I’ve been eager to get this project complete so I can retire the folder 🙂
There’s a little more shimmer in person. I love the gold kitty faces and the matching gold ribbon I selected for the handles. As you can see, there are two main vinyl pockets and two smaller zip pockets that are sewn in down the middle. Adding the vinyl was probably my most challenging step in the pattern and I even had to modify it a little to fit properly, but you really can’t tell where 🙂 This was a day long project and now the sewing room needs some cleaning!
Looking forward to seeing how everyone in the SAL group is progressing on their projects! Join me by clicking on the member blog links below:
