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!

Squee! Finally a pattern for one of these!
I’m buying this right now…
I’m seeing in the instructions that it calls for something called “1/2 yd of fusible interfacing, Pellon Themolam”.
Do you sell that at the shop?
I love these fabrics together! Such a great little bag. Your cross stitch looks wonderful! I love the colors and the start of the leafy vine. Can’t wait to see it completed!
I have to admit that I was pretty jazzed (!) to see this pattern posted yesterday. The hoop bag Amanda made for you is seriously gorgeous, and the quilting is something I aspire to.
I know what I’m making this weekend!
How wonderful. I was just contemplating taking some stitchery to NYC next week. This bag is just what I need for the trip! All the samplers are just beautiful… why oh why am I not closer to Toronto? Such cool happenings at your shop.
i love this bag. i’m just a little worried about the zipper but we’ll see how i go.
btw will they be holding the intro to cross stitching class again soon?
[…] I’ve really been in the mood for some improv patchwork, so last night I started by using some scraps of purple nani IRO double gauze and threw in other scraps of dark grape-y purple, navy and light blues. I wanted to keep it fairly simple, but kept adding more and more scraps. It’s hard to stop, once you get going! I built two separate, but similar blocks so that they would be the right size for me to make myself a travel hoop bag. […]
