New item

 It is s Stitching Tote.. I am very pleased with the way it has turned out.. This is the front of the tote. It has a stitched panel and a frill. Plus some machine fancy stitching as well.... You could substitute braid instead of the machine fancy stitches.. Don't you love the way I have closed the bag with the little baby cotton reels on the twisted cord.

This is the back of the bag... I have made a foundation pieced heart block and even had a go at adding a little piping.....

This is the inside of the bag.......

Here are the threads. I have also made a thimble bag. You will also see that there is a pocket to hold your notebook and one to hold your pen. Plus there is a pocket for other things to hide in.

Now on this side we have a needle book, a scissor keep and a detachable pin cushion. Plus a large pocket to hold your stitchery and pattern.

I have used my matching bias to bind the tote and a heavy duty fast to fuse double sided interfacing to give the tote strength.... It is lovely and strong and easy to use and sew through.

There will be a kit available for the wooden pieces to go with this pattern .....
We are waiting on stock of the wooden reels to arrive and will work out a price for the kits when they do.

I also have the interfacing, Fabrics and bias in stock.... Plus a limited supply of the threads I used for the stitchery. I am ordering more.

 Pattern on it's own as a hard copy will be $10, plus postage..... $5.50 for an e pattern. 

Pattern is half finished at the moment. Hopefully I will have it ready to go by the end of the week.
