I finally did something with my embroidery projects. I like to make things that have a function - cute artsy stuff are pretty to look at, but the first question that pops into my head is - What does it do?
The only thing I could think of for my stitched pieces of linen was to turn them into zippered pouches. Really, that's it, I have no idea what else to do with them.
So I sewed two little pouches. The first one is about 12 cm x 13 cm, with a Rocket pattern from Sublime Stitching Craft Pad. The second one is 9 cm x 12 cm, pattern based on the one in Doodle Stitching.
Installing a zipper would have been way easier if I had a zipper foot on my sewing machine. Or if I had the ability to sew a perfectly straight line.
Of course, now that I sewed the pouches, they don't do anything. They just sit on my table waiting for me to put something in them. Maybe spare change for the Tree one?
