Needle Pouch

I thought this was a really lovely idea for a different kind of finish for keeping needles safe, and have wanted to try it for some time.  It was a mystery SAL organised by Anne Marie in 2009.  Unfortunately by the time I stumbled across it the link to the finishing instructions no longer worked. I thought it looked quite straight forward though, so thought I would give it a go away!  I'm really pleased with how it's turned out!





The design I chose is different to the one used for the SAL - this one is Delicatesse from Dany which I have stitched on 40ct Newcastle Flax with DMC 310.  I would have liked bigger and prettier beads to attach to the ribbon, but all I could find in my stash with a large enough hole to thread the ribbon through were Mill Hill pebble beads!  I will have to keep an eye out for some large hole beads for when I make another.

Pop along to the album on Anne Marie's blog to see all the lovely finishes from the stitchers who participated in the SAL back in 2009.

I'm not sure when I will next be back blogging again because I'm off home soon to the UK for several weeks.  I'm so excited - I can't wait to see my boys, and to spend time with my Mum!  :o)

You very well made a success of this work and it is really very kind to you to have quoted my work.
I am sorry but 1 year ago I deleted the blog where I gave small models because Ididn't have the time.
By deleting (it) I forgot that there was the tutos of my works mysteries.
It is a very good idea to have embroidered Dany's model.
