First up is one of my very first pieces of hardanger. To finish it, I backed the hardanger with a piece of teal cotton that perfectly matched little flowers in the floral print that I used to cover a paper mache box. I'm quite pleased with how it turned out and use the little box to store some bits and bobs.
Next are a couple of cross stitch pieces that I made into cute zipper pouches with bright red zippers. I finished them off with metal zipper tags with the Canadian maple leaf. These pouches are being used as project bags.
So my finishing pile is down by three! Maybe not a lot but it's still something. :)
Now, onto my sewing projects....
Since I really needed a new purse because mine was looking quite shabby I decided to make my own. I found the Hippo Hobo pattern by Emkie Designs and made two - one for winter and one for summer. They're a little on the large side, but they're perfect for carrying my things to work and since they're quite light I don't mind using it as an every day bag either.
I thought I'd practice making some wallets with cork and whipped up these two Slimline wallets. The pattern is by Carla's Creations and can be found on Craftsy. I especially love the Tula Pink fabric. That fox is simply the cutest thing ever.
I've been on the lookout for a small wallet pattern for awhile and came across the Limelight wallet designed by RLR creations. I love the ID window in this one, but managed to flub it up when I was ironing it towards the end. If you look closely you can see the melted plastic. Aside from that, I consider it a success. It's an adorable little wallet pattern.
