* finished felt sewing box

Posted on April 22nd, 2006 by maitreya. Filed under Cross Stitch/Embroidery, Felting.


Here’s the first one all put together. I started out thinking of it as just a desk organizer, but now I’m thinking it’s almost a modern take on the sewing box. The fabric in the background is a thrift store pillowcase that I fused to the backs of the embroidered pieces to keep the thread ends safe. For the rest of the directions, you’ll just have to wait for the book! Now on to the second one, which really is a desk organizer.

    Everyone has already said how beautiful and cool it is, so while I agree I am saying something else.

    My mom still has those sheets, and when I started teaching, the Kindergarten class had it covering an open cabinet.
