Granny Maud's Girl, suggesting Annela's blog for inspiration for pouches and small makes from heavier weight cottons it occurred to me that it would be the perfect place to find a use for this embroidered design of a fox and a bunny!
The design is from Urban Threads Moonlit Winter. They have since released Spring, Summer & Autumn in both machine and hand embroidery - they are really gorgeous. Urban threads is another one of my favourites and well worth a look!
I came across this design while looking for cute bunny rabbits, as my swap partner for the #SPDFairytaleswap on Instagram loves them. I thought this fox and rabbit were seriously cute. I'm calling them Fred and Barbara (no idea why, just suits them to me!)
My Husqvarna has an embroidery adapter that I don't use much, preferring to hand stitch embroidery but sometimes I set it up and use Silk threads and let it run. I had a nice big scrap of solid grey and let the machine do its thing and scratched my head for a bit as to what to do with the embroidered piece.
Annela's Project Book Pouch looked like it might be the perfect thing for it. I used some Architextures and Art Gallery fabric to make the little piece stretch into a book cover.
Some Minimalista fabric and a low volume fat quarter with scissors all seemed to go well together to make pockets for a few small goodies.
Hand sewn binding on the front to finish. I used fusible fleece on the front cover as I wanted it a bit squishy. Next time, (and there will be a next time as I am definitely making one of these for myself and probably as Christmas presents for everyone I know!) I'd stick with Aneela's instructions and use the stiff heavyweight fusible to make it more book like.
Linking up to the Friday finishes and
