So, it's birthday gift time again here! The one I'm showing you today was made for a friend who loves beading. And hand embroidery. And machine embroidery! So I went searching for a gift idea to use one of the above and managed to get inspiration to combine all three!
This is a hanging pocket, to pop bits and pieces you want handy in. I used cotton, cotton wadding and taffeta to make it, with bias binding scraps.
The embroidery and bead work was done by hand, I sketched a quick design and then let my imagination fill n the details as I stitched. All the beads were bought in Wales on a holiday we went on together.
To make it sturdy, the back section of the pocket is quilted with a swirly machine backing.
All in all, I am quite pleased with it! I have a little more embroidery to show off on Thursday.
