Blue Day

I did a test drive today on this little number - super cute and super easy - and it comes out of scraps - requirements say fat 1/8 but really it is much less than that. Another free pattern that can be found here. Oh, what is it you ask - Simple Sewing Companion - just big enough for a small pair of scissors, some thread, a little pencil and it comes with a pattern for a little needle book which fits snuggly in one of the pockets - there are three. Trace, Sew, turn and fold - Simple is a very apt word for this beauty.
Finished stitching the last panel of the Blue Christmas last night and put together the top today - think I should have taken a tad more notice of the directions this time, got myself in a big muddle when cutting out the completed stitcheries, but I like the result - much better in real life but the colours make it very difficult to photograph with my camera.
The verse says "What is Christmas? It is tenderness for the past, courage for the present and hope for the future. It is a fervent wish that every cup may overflow with blessings rich and eternal, and that every path may lead to peace. " Agnes M. Pharo.
The pattern for this series can be found here. Thanks Shell.
Hope you had a creative Thursday. Happy Crafting

How cute is that little companion. That fabric is just right with those stitcheries. Looking forward to seeing the finished project.

Thanks for the link to the sewing companion! I received one of these from my angel and thought I would like to make some for my sewing friends. Thanks again.
