I spent most of the day in my studio yesterday and I feel so much better for it. Before I show you what I made with the teal fabric I want to share my completed Stitchery Roll. The inspiration for the roll came from the latest Australian Country Threads Stitchery magazine that came out earlier this year. Here is what the roll looks like when it is closed.
I used coffee-themed fabric for the outside. A perfect choice for Coffee Time Stitches, right?
I lined the inside with brown flannel for holding projects in place. I added a row of pockets for holding thread, a small hoop, scissors and miscellaneous items. The original pattern called for wrapping the end of the roll around a PVC pipe. I wanted a roll that could lay flat and be squishie if I want to toss it in a suitcase.
And now for the teal fabric. I made a Flirty Skirty reversible apron for the Hot Drinks for Hot Mamas Swap at Yarni Gras. This is the reversible side.
And, without further ado, here is the front of the apron. I really like the way the apron turned out. I know my swap partner will like it, too. It's going out in the mail tomorrow morning along with some other goodies.
I have Thursday, Friday, Sunday and Monday off. That means I'll be able to get some more serious sewing time in. I can't wait!
