Free Hand Machine Embroidery with Raw Edge Applique
I've been quite busy over the last couple of weeks, so have not got as much stitching and blogging done as usual, but today I managed to sew this little linen pouch;
It features plenty of upcycled materials including this butterfly fabric and the same pair of linen curtains which I have used for most of my projects this year - I'm ready for the car boot season to start, so that I can source some 'new' fabric to replenish my depleted stash. The zip is also recycled and probably older than me!
The little butterflies were based on a digital stamp by Wendy Massey over at Handmade Harbour.
The back has a little appliqued butterfly, cut from the main fabric, and a 'SewforSoul' label.
The pouch has a lovely Summer feel, although outside my window it's raining.
Roll on warmer days!
