I was inspired this month to stitch up some very small smalls for the August SAL. They stitched up so quickly I didn’t have time for a progress picture so I saved them for you. First I did a little Shepherd’s Bush fob, I think it is called “Blooms.” It is very bright and cheery!
It is a little big for a fob I think so I will make it into a little pillow with the included ribbon trim, which I love. I do not plan to stitch the backside but I have some nice bright fabric I’ll use instead.
It was so quick I decided to go ahead and stitch a second small that also promised to be a 2 session project. This one is called Red Bird and Basket from JBW Designs. I bought the little kit from another stitcher awhile ago and it came with the little needlebook to stitch and the floss. How cute is this?
It was a little tricky to stitch the tiny little sewn-in patch of linen. I think I’ll poke in a little interfacing to catch any ends that didn’t get tacked down well.
These were so rewarding that I thought about doing even one more small but didn’t quite get it done. I’ll save it for next month.
What have you been stitching these days?
