Eye Glasses case

I just finished stitching "First Snow" by Drawn Threads and made it into an eye glasses case. This is my first attempt to make the case and I think I used the wrong interfacing to make the fabric stiff. I had a hard time inserting the inner fabric inside the case due to the stiffness. Next time, I will just use interfacing for the outer fabric and not the inner fabric. Velcro is inside the case near the top to keep the glasses from slipping out.

"Nuts About Autumn"

I just finished this "Nuts about Autumn" on 28 ct. white Laguana.
I love the design and decided to stitch another one for myself.

christmas tag

This is the front of the gift tag. All the stitching is done with specialty stitches. I used interfacing to make the linen a bit stiff and added grommet to insert the ribbon.

"My Little Heart" SAL

I just finished the "My Little Heart" SAL. This was a fun stitch! I am thinking of making this into a lid for a basket or a box.
