Travelling Stitcher

Hello friends, I hope you are having a nice weekend :) Many thanks for the lovely comments left about the pillows, I just love to hearing from everyone!

I've got some more finishing to share with you today. I'd been on the look out for some fabric to make up the needlecase and stitcher's wallet for my Travelling Stitcher set for awhile now and as I mentionned yesterday, the local fabric shop has some very lovely new fabrics in and what do you know, exactly what I had in mind for it!

It wasn't as tricky to make up as I thought it might have been, as I did only have the picture on the Travelling Stitcher pattern to go by.


I used a running stitch to attach the stitched piece to the wallet and needlecase.

Now all it needs is some sort of fastner or button and some wool felt for the inside of the needlecase and I'll be soon filling it up with my stitching accessories!


Its another gorgeous day here and later on we're going to be joining friends for dinner at one of our favourite local restaurants. I couldn't think of a nicer way to end the weekend!
Bye for now!

Well done on making the travelling stitcher wallet and needlebook on your own. I love the fabric colour, it matches beautifully with the stitching.
