Embroidery To-Go Pouch & Daisychain ABC Crewelwork Sampler

Sep 28, 2011
Pin It Have you seen this lovely pattern??  It's the Daisychain ABC Crewelwork Sampler from Posie: Rosey Little Things.

I first saw it over at Twin Fibers.  I forgot to pin it - so thankgoodness I remembered and it was on my mind when I needed to come up with a portable project for the Sewing Summit.

I've started just a little bit.  I'm working on natural linen and using DMC embroidery floss instead of the crewel wool.  This will probably take me quite a while, but that's okay....

ABC Sampler

And while I was setting up my embroidery project for travel, I realized I don't really have a pouch for carrying everything.  So, of course, that sidetracked me into a totally different project.

Embroidery pouch.  Love. it.

I found the quote online "I cannot count my day complete til fabric, thread, and fabric meet." and thought it was perfect for my embroidery pouch.

Here's the back...

I embroidered some embellishments onto this adorable print.  I don't know what it is.....but I received it in one of Sew Fresh Fabrics awesome scrap packs. (edit:  It's Spring Street by Carolyn Gavin, P&B Textiles) Here's my favorite detail.

I added a D-ring and lanyard clasp so I could carry my portable embroidery project as a sort of wristlet at the Sewing Summit after-hours sew-a-thons.  This part didn't turn out exactly as planned, but it was deemed "done anyway".  Doesn't have to be perfect, right?

And here's the inside, lined with a 30s print and filled with my hoop, linen and pattern, ready to go Travel Handmade!!

Sometimes I just love it when one project leads to another unexpected one.

  7. I did something like that when I decided to pick up crochet, I ended up sewing a crochet roll up! I feel very fashionable whenever I crochet now. Oh and I LOVE how that pouch turned out and the quote. Sew true!
