I've been designing again :D

I have a new design. Actually it's a series of designs though they're not quite ready to go up on etsy. I just had to show off this one.

I started stitching at 8 this morning and I finished the stitching and finish finished the piece in 3 hours. It's a new record I think for me to finish finish on the day I start! I usually leave that for months.

I did the stitching and was caught by the uses I could put this design to.

SO I grabbed out my collection of black and white fabrics and started fiddling 



For once I didn't measure ANYTHING! Sorry I lie. I measured the felt. It had to be a certain shape and I wanted it even. 

The bright yellow was so cheery and stunning against the black and white! 

 I didn't bother with wadding because I didn't want it to be too bulky and the felt looks nice showing through a little on the front.
 I folded it and sewed up the sides.

 Here is my finished product! A Tape Measure holder with a cross stitched tape measure on the front! Nothing is aligned in the middle buy I deliberately didn't measure so it all looks off so it all looks right :D

I even have a tape measure already inside. Though I still have to find the perfect button. 


To give you an idea on size, it's a little bit bigger than I wanted originally but the cross stitch is only about an inch across! 

Happy Stitching, 
Caitlin

  2. Awww that is so cute. What a lovely idea. Perhaps you could make me a big one as I have about 20 tape measures and can never find one!
