Its all about Tilda

 I have had a lovely time in my sewing room this week making some things with my much loved tilda fabrics. The first cut was hard but once I got going and I knew what I wanted to make it was good fun.


 I have always wanted a little stitching folder to hold my stitchery projects while I work on them.
 So I came up with this, it was so much fun to make, the buttons and the braid make the front I think.
 The birdie tilda fabric is my favourite so I had to put that through the middle.It ties together with some ribbon.
 When you open it up it has 2 pockets to hold projects and threads.
 Now I can take my projects with me wherever I go.
I have some new ideas on what I want to make next, now I'm on a roll I plan to use a bit more of the tilda fabric I have stored in the cupboard. First I need to tidy my sewing room, do you know how happy that makes me, I'm sure you think I'm mad but just the fact I have a sewing room to clean makes my day . I would be reading other blogs and they would say how messy their sewing rooms were and I would think how lucky they were to have one. Now I can join the messy sewing room club.
Have a wonderful day.

Love your folder. The fabrics are just beautiful. Will have to get some Tilda fabrics. I also made a folder for my stitcheries this year from a Leanne Beasley pattern. It is great. Don't know why I took so long to make one. Hugs...

Just when I thought you couldn't make anything more beautiful than all the projects you have posted about before, you do. That bird fabric is just so special. What a pretty folder, one you should be very proud to carry around. You clever thing! Welcome to the messy sewing room club - you have good reason for it! Tracee xx
