Hussif....ta da!!

It's finished!

...and I'm delighted with it! :-)



After finishing the cover I made the inside "pages" with craft Vilene. ( S80/240)

I coloured these using Transfer Dyes ....



...ironed on after painting onto printer paper.



Cutting a long story short a bit here...

...I've now got a hussif that looks like this...



The first "page" has a printed pocket to hold my thread cutter.




Middle page spread has two felt panels for pins and needles.




The back page holds a little notebook made specially for purpose...

...because I always think of good ideas when I'm stitching and they just HAVE to be written down!! :-)

 The pockets formed by stitching the two pieces of Vilene together keep your threads/scissors/pencil safe.


 It is all held nice and cosy with a rat-tail bow.








I skipped all the making-stages here because I'm going to write this up as a "Freebie" project and put it on the website - hopefully by the end of next week.

(Maybe someone else out there would like to make one?)



Skies are clearing....

...stitching beckons....

This is wonderful and so very handy!! Always nice to have everything that you need in a little packet - and to have it be lovely is an added benefit!

So beautiful and practical, I'd love to make one to myself.

It's turning out brilliantly! I love the idea of the vilene pages doing double duty as pockets. I have something similar, but nowhere near as well thought out as yours!
