A couple months ago, I received the best gift from Amanda. A Hoop Travel Bag. With all the different classes (Intro to Cross Stitch, Quilt Sampler 2, Sewn Mittens, etc) that I’ve been taking recently, I’ve been wanting to create a better (cuter!) way to tote around my tools & supplies. Well, this hoop travel bag has become one of my favourite things for my hand work projects.
Isn’t it super adorable? Take a look at the incredible quilting she did! Including embroidering my name! The hoop bag is just the right size to stash a little project and all my tools. I’m finally sharing this treasure with you because Amanda just published the pattern for this project on The Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery! It’s an awesome, quick project that you will love to pieces. (and probably make twenty of)
Also, you can see my cross stitch sampler progress below. I completed the alphabet and bird a couple weeks ago. I’m now slowly working on stitching a pretty round border that Johanna designed for me. Take a look at how Tanya’s beautiful tonal grey cross stitching turned out. Every single student from our class is completely hooked on cross stitch now. So fun!
