This time next week we will be all set up and ready for four days of vending at the Stitches & Craft Show at the Caulfield Racecourse. This time this week (aka today) I am still stitching samples, writing patterns and making up kits. I'm a great list maker and I find it helpful for keeping me on track with what needs to be done. I had on my list to make a new version of my Phone Pouch. I used some cute Hexden papers for the English Paper Piecing on the front.
The kits are all done.....so that is another tick off the list.
I have had some of the short 4 1/2" wallet frames in stock for a couple of months now, so after some working out I have made a couple of versions of a new wallet.
The floral version was the prototype.....and with a few tweaks I made a second version using some fussy cut panel pieces from a past range called "Good Company". I love the cute hedgehog on the front.....and here is the back.
I am not a fan of foxes, but I know they are popular so I chose him for the back of the wallet. He does look pretty cute, and I am sure that he wouldn't eat my chooks....would he? I will have limited kits available for the Good Company Wallet, but I will also have the pattern and frames available so that you could select your own fabrics.
The final new project is a small purse. It took me several attempts to get the shape right and although Russell doesn't "get it", I think the style of it is quite different and I like it.
I have some pattern writing to do over the coming days which is the bit that I hate the most......well as they say no pain....no gain!
