It's been snowing today here, not feeling much like Cinco de Mayo at all! Think I should go to Mexico to catch up on the heat? I'd love to!
I spent part of the day finally getting to work on the Zakka Style Pencil Case, and I called mine Rosie Posie!
I love the orange linen! And the Kaffe Fasset scraps, and even the polka dots!
This project's new technique was those little embroidered initials. I have seen embroidered tags on towels and things in Sweden, and I have seen the blank ribbon here too, but I couldn't find any. I did find some of the tape people sew into their clothing nowadays, that they use a marking pen with. So I went with that. I looked up different ways to make initials, and some different easy stitches. I found the stitches here and I combined many different initial styles to something I drew myself. They are supposed to be L.T. but maybe that T looks like a J!
At any rate, working with the brightly colored linen, and the fabulous posies I chose for the strips made me forget about that snow outside for a good while.
