How sweet is this "Little Lamb"! I embroidered it on bleached muslin, then hand-sewed it onto the fabric I had already cut out for a fabric basket (but for this swap, I'm calling it a sewing basket!) I didn't have any vintage fabric, but this blue seemed just the right shade.
You can see the lining of the basket below. Again, it isn't a vintage fabric, but the colors were just right, so I went with it!
I love this cute little deer! I did this the same way as the lamb, by first embroidering it onto bleached muslin, then sewing it onto the fabric I had already cut to the size to use for this needlebook.
Since it's a sewing accessories swap, I wanted to add a pin cushion of some kind, and this tie-on pincushion was the perfect thing to go on the sewing basket. It is made of wool felt.
Then I went on a mini shopping spree and gathered a bunch of color-coordinated sewing notions to fill up the basket.
Here's the message I got from Adrienne when she received this package:
"I just got a chance to unwrap your package and I am completely stunned by how absolutely beautiful and thoughtful everything was! That basket and needlebook are so professional and perfect! And the colors! Blue and pink--my favorites! Thank you SO much, and I hope my package gives you even half the heart flutters yours gave ME!"
I think she likes it!! Yay!
