Last week I had to devote some time to reorganizing my fabric stash - it was becoming ridiculously messy and I couldn't find anything. Hardly any semblance of color order remained. As I was organizing, I came across these two prints sitting on top of each other and I loved the pair together: deep, rich raspberry with jade.
I decided to add a bunch of other fabrics and a few colors to the mix (blacks and dark peach) to make a tote (Tag Along designs) for my needlework (usually cross stitch). I used this pattern a while ago to make one for my sister, blogged here.
I used that quirky sewing themed print for the lining and other stash fabrics within the interior. To the right is a vinyl zippered pocket, the left pocket is perfect for paper patterns. I didn't notice how crooked the left pocket was until I finished! I quickly decided t's not worth the time to redo it all.
I don't have a lot of opportunities to cross-stitch outside my own home but it's nice to have this cute bag to use when the chance comes.
