“Necessity is the mother of invention.”
and since i was in need of something i could hold my embroidery stuff in and tote around with me, i invented this:
what i love about embroidery is that it travels well. if i wanted to work on a project outside while the boys played i would turn the hoop upside down and toss my scissors and thread in and i would pin my needle into the edge and head wherever. i can embroider in any room in the house, in the car (if i’m not driving)…anywhere.
i have a very curious marshall.
he likes scissors and actually pulled my needle out while i was pulling weeds and tossed it on the grass. so obviously i haven’t found it and that kinda scares me. basically i just couldn’t have that stuff laying around.
as i’m preparing this tutorial + pattern + this post i’m thinking, you really could have just bought a cute makeup bag or something as used that. but that’s not me. that would have cost money. and this didn’t since i used all supplies i have in my stash. just making do…
it started out as a sketch, as most of my ideas do. if i don’t get the thought out of my head and onto paper, it’s gone. poof.
[insert pic of sketches]
then i thought that maybe i’d work on an actual pattern to share with all you lovelies! but it’s taking me a while to write it out and i’m way too excited to keep it in anymore!
are you ready?
i can put my scissors, threads and needles in here, fold it up and off i go!
and since i like you guys so much, i’m gonna give you a little sneak at a detail before i release the tutorial and pattern.
i folded up some quilting batting and wrapped the fabric around it to hold the needles safely.
this is kinda the coolest thing i’ve come up with myself as usually i am inspired by something someone else does.
i hope you’re as excited about this as i am!
