My first finish of the year!

We are almost at the end of the first quarter of the "new" year, can you believe it? I finally finished the sewing kit I started about two years ago at a workshop with Sue Spargo.


The inside with the bird pin cushion, the needle book and two zipped pockets, as well as some pockets for pens, scissors etc. The leather string can hold several thread spools.


Turned around and the back pocket is visible. A handy little bag and I'm happy to have it finally finished.


Talking about sewing bags; I bought some cosmetics recently and it came in this little box


which turned out to be the perfect size for my new EPP project. It even has a little pocket inside the lid for the scissors. 



But it does need some sort of decoration on it, don't you agree? So since I had my felt and embroidery paraphernalia out anyway, that's what I did! The hardest part was to sew the felt to the plastic rim, but I managed it in the end (pricking myself in the finger a few times).


So actually that's two finishes. I hope to get 17 UFOs and other projects finished this year playing along here.



Happy weekend.
