I’ve finished my embroidery folder project and I love it. This is the outside of it.
I found some odds and ends of leftover bindings that I sewed together and finished the outer edge. I like the additional colours. It took a bit of fussing to get it all cut to the right size so that it would fold up without anything bulging, but it got done. Here’s a close up of the front.
The inside is divided up into three pockets, stitched in place where the folds lie.
And I have my first new project that uses the folder started. It’s the manger scene I showed last week.
It is stitching up quite quickly. I have at least two more embroidery projects waiting in the wings. Both need to be traced out onto fabric and both need tinting with crayons before stitching. I have threads for them coming from the Crabapple Hill shop. I’m linking to Kathy’s Slow Sunday Stitching.
