Organised Embroidery

My cross-stitch project has been lying around our living room for quite some time now, I like to pick it up when I have time so putting it 'away' never seems to happen. So, I decided to make something pretty to hold all my supplies in :) what do you think?
I was inspired by this one, after some online searching, and thought to myself hey, I could make one of those! (in much nicer fabrics!) So after some deliberation of what fabrics to use I decided upon an old Cath K print I've been hanging on to for a while - added a bit of pink binding and giant ric rac and hey presto! organised supplies in no time! I think it would be useful for all sorts of crafty activities that I do while watching the t.v :) Hope you're all having an enjoyable week :) see you tomorrow! Jessie, xo

  2. Love it! I was wondering about this sort of idea, but then settled on a little pouch in the end but I love yours. The fabrics (and the whole thing) are far, far superior to the Amazon one! Well done you :)
