Pink Zipper Pouch

A (long) while back, someone I know saw my work and asked if I could make a gift for her daughter. I happily agreed. 

She did not care what I made, and insisted she would be happy with anything in any color. Very sweet.

Unfortunately, I ended up with creative block. Most of my work includes beads, charms or buttons. This needed to be something without any choking hazards. There were too many options and too many ideas. Over time, I watched as this friend shared photos on social media and decided pink looked like a good color to use.

Using a stem stitch, I embroidered the young lady's first initial onto pink sparkly fabric with a variegated pearl cotton floss.

This pink butterfly print was used for the lining and the back.

I have one more project to finish up this week so the two items can be on their way to an adorable young lady!

I am joining Monday Stitchery Link Party #126 at Super Mom - No Cape! 

The vintage embroidery pattern shared at the party this week is a covered bridge. I am trying so hard to finish up projects this year without starting new ones, but I have soooo many ideas seeing this embroidery pattern. 

If any of you are interested in embroidering the covered bridge, we could do a little stitch-along, using that pattern in common and see just how unique our creations turn out. (Yes, I am looking for enablers to join me in some stitchy-fun!) Just let me know! In the mean time, I will be working on another finish or two to justify a new start...


Thanks for stopping by!

That is a beautiful design for the A. Stem Stitch a great choice.

Very pretty! I'm in awe of anyone who can embroider.

Your stitching is so perfect! This looks very nice and will be loved, I'm sure. I downloaded the pattern not long after you did, because I saw your comment. LOL I was thinking exactly the same thing. I keep telling myself it will be fast with running stitch on a lot of it. Maybe if someone else joins you, I will, too. 'Cause you know ... I have nothing to stitch these days. =)

I saw that covered bridge, and it is cute! If I had more stitching time, I would join you.

I'm sure the young lady in question will love it - so perfect for her to store her little treasures in.
