Kartonnage


I just love doing kartonnage, but the victorian sewing box wasn't my first project. The first one was this box I made for the Our Love of Needlework exchange at SBEBB. For this one I stitched "For a special stitcher" from Elizabeth designs. It had to be something which had to do with stitching and as I wanted to make her a "1001 things" box. I had to have a design which was the correct size. You see on this pic how lovely it looks open, also I did a great job on using my stashfabrics as both fabrics are from my stash.
Tuesday I had my last lesson for the victorian sewing box, but as I didn;t had time to put on the cats already I did that this afternoon . I had a nice chat with the ladies of the group tuesday evening and also today with only the owner of the shop it was very nice chatting. I already want to make some more. I saw a box for putting your quiltblocks in and that was a nice idea too. I am almost ready with page 3 of Little red riding hood, only 50 stitches left so probaly a new pic will come this weekend.
Also two more days to sign up for the drawing.
