Here's a quick project I completed recently. A friend kindly bought this cotton rectangular piece for me, with my initial embroidered on it, from a craft and vintage fair we visited. She was right, the colours are very me!
I wasn't really sure what to do with it, or how best to show it off, until my clever mum came up with the idea of making it into an envelope in which to keep ongoing sewing projects when on my travels. I often go and visit friends overnight, usually travelling by train, so this will keep my needles, scissors, pins and project all together and safe!
The buttons are phoney - they're glued on top of press studs but I still wanted it to look pretty!
