I have been busy working on my list and getting things done, but there are always surprises and additions.
My oldest daughter needed a case to carry around supplies for her classes. Since she is a fashion student, the case had to be different than your dollar store variety. It also had to be big enough to hold scissors.
The nerd pocket design from Urban Threads came to mind. I embroidered it on a piece of pink felt. Here's the stash busting part -- the pink felt was leftover from a costume I made her when she was 6 years old (she's 21 now). She was the cutest Pink Power Ranger ever.
Do you see the depths of my addiction. Who keeps scraps for that long?
After embroidering the design I traced the shape of the hoop onto the fabric and cut it out with a wavy blade rotary cutter. I did the same for the back. Then I triple stitched them together to make the stitching stand out. Velcro at the top holds it all together.
While visiting Urban Threads I found this button. I love it! I hope that I show that embroidery doesn't have to mean teddy bears and puppy dogs on everything. They have their place just not on my shirts.
Thanks for dropping by,
