Thank you for all of your very sweet comments
on my rhubarb post
you made me blush
Now to reveal what all the apple glimpses have been about recently
This rosy apple applique started it's life destined to be a lavender bag
like this one
as requested by my lovely friend Chrissie
a nice teacher gift .....
although as I got stitching I suddenly had a brainwave
How about a teacher 'supplies' pocket?
a special place for a teacher to store their bits & bobs
you know like .....
pens, stickers, stamps, glasses and maybe a little choccy number!
Luckily Chrissie doesn't mind going with the flow
The pocket is lined with a pretty co-ordinating fabric
and the whole thing is edged with handmade
and hand sewn binding
I think it gives a lovely polished finish
I LOVE making my own bias binding
I find it very addictive.
I used Tilda fabrics
which, as you may know, are my favourites
and possibly another of my 'addictions'
I added a label with the teachers name
A teacher's 'supplies' pocket
I think they make fabulous 'thank you' gifts
for a special teacher
I've only made a limited number
if you are interested they are in my shop
While I'm nattering on .....
I'd love your opinion, if you don't mind me asking?
I think this pocket idea has 'legs'
I was thinking
maybe a pocket for Grandma to hang by her chair
maybe for children, by their bed perhaps
I'd love to know if you have any ideas
although beware I may have to steal them!
I am having a busy brainwave time at the moment
my mind is in overdrive with new ideas
especially at bedtime!
I know better than not to utilise it
I'm making the most of it
just in case it vanishes without warning
things to make!
