Bag for keeping all my packets of needles in.

Hi all  I stitched this little bag all by hand --even the zip in 2010 and have made it the home for all my numerous packets of needles. Its rather like a Crazy block --made from pieces of the same fabric but all different shapes --I fused then onto a piece of batting and there it sat for some time-- Inspiration came after I browsed a book called--the magic of Crazy Quilting. A page caught my eye showing what one could do using just one stitch--Blanket stitch--a favourite of mine.I also uses French knots.So using a variety threads and Blanket stitch I had some fun.

There is no special front or back now  for the inside where I have added some pockets to keep the packets of needles in- and must admit that Fudge did stitch the hems!!
Must admit that I do have to keep my eye on this bag as my stitching friends have admired it and suggested I should  be careful where I leave it when they are around!!

  1. Jan you are right, you will have to hang onto it even more now that I have enlarged the photo - the stitching is fantastic.
