4 In swaps/ The Best Of Emkie

Sweet little pretties, little embroidery swap (part 1)

Hi everyone

As you all know, I’ve been taking part in some swaps recently 🙂
This one was run by Lisa from http://www.sweetlittlepretties.com/
Here is the item I made for my partner of this swap…

The embroidery design is my own (yep! I designed it and hopefully one day soon I’ll get my but into gear and organise myself enough to write up a pattern and release it for sale :D)
I’ve used cotton fabric, the red/white/black fabric was found in my MIL’s stash (and I nicked it :P), the black was bought from spotlight; the lace was bought from a local op shop; and I used a lace zip to finish the item off.
I decided to turn my embroidery piece into a zipper pouch so that it would be useful for my partner (I hate when the things I make end up sitting on a shelf because they are “to good to use” – mum,  grandma, yes this comment is aimed at you :P).
My partners favourite colour combination was Red/Kraft/Black…how do you think I did? 🙂
My partner has received her embroidery piece…
“Emma,
Thankyou so much for my little pouch, I love it and I have a thing for pouches too!!
It’s perfect in colours, your needlework is wonderful.”

I’m so glad you liked it Sonia 🙂
Sonia’s blog is http://mythoughtsbysonia.blogspot.com.au/ head over and have a look at her lovely work 🙂
I’m still waiting on my little embroidery piece to arrive…when it does I’ll let you all know 🙂
Oh, and the little monsters been sick, so I haven’t finished my mat for the sew along…hopefully I’ll finish that later this week 🙂
