This is the first time I have made one of these pouches, when I make it again I will put another band of fabric under 'too many shoes' to improve the appearance of the bag. I used iron on fleece (Pellon) to give the bag some support.
I have not done much stitching on Santas Village but hopefully I will catch up with that soon.
I have also been making another box and that will be available over the next week or so, think vintage lace, silk and embroidery!
This week I received a lovely email from a lady called Mary (no blog) she kindly sent me photographs of a toblerone she made using my tutorial. I think Mary has done herself proud as she has made a beautiful toblerone using a Plum Street cross stitch pattern. You can see the photos below.
Congratulations Mary on such a wonderful finish!
Blue work in progress
I had just steam pressed the fabric and then I wrote the words on too quickly and the words bled - oops!
I hope the thread covers the lines!
