Who knew?

Who knew I would enjoy making cross stitch accessories almost as much as I enjoy stitching?

The set below was for part of my Mom’s Christmas gifts. I ended up using a yard of breast cancer fabric she had bought for herself. I had already made her an ort bag with the green/pink ribbon and the pink butterfly fabric but squirreled away the leftovers.

I made an 8″ and 11″ Q-snap cover, a needlebook, a 14″ envelope to protect hooped/Q-snapped projects on the go and a bottle cap pin cushion.

I ended up changing the way I make a needlebook so I told Mom I owe her a second book. And those bottle cap pin cushions? They are such FUN to make!!!!!

In this shot, under the pin cushion, is a little bag to cover the mini magnifier on Mom’s MightBrite Vue Magnifier!



So cute I wanted it for myself!

This is the big craft/tote bag I made for my cousin. I also made a matching 8″/9″ hoop cover to protect from those dirty fingers we all have no matter how much we wash them! 🙂

There’s a needlebook, an ort bag and a bottle cap pin cushion! Tonight I bought myself some fabric in a different set of colors to make my own. I’m not a “pink kind of girl” but these Heidi Grace fabrics from Joann’s are really gorgeous!

I am still fine tuning my patterns but once I get them done maybe I will post a Tutorial so you can all make your own cross stitch accessories!

My first giveaway

I recently had my first giveaway for my readers. I was really excited to do it and am already planning more for the rest of the year!

The very first winner was Rachel over at Come Stitch With Me! Congrats Rachel. Your package is on its way.


I had a blast putting this all together!

Included is an 11″ Q-snap grime protector, a needle book, ort bag…

Some favorite Christmas DMC and Kreinik combinations, a Lizzie Kate Snippet, Dimensions Gold Collection kit…

a frame style ornament for a cross stitched small and wood ornies to customize!

Not a great picture but it’s a scissor fob with a murano style glass bead!
