Embroidered Sewing Kit OPAM 2012

A few weeks back I posted about finding a marked out piece of fabric that I must have done years ago 
and decided to finish it.....
Well, after having to think what I could make the small panel into (as this bit was not really thought about until AFTER I had cut the edge fabric.  Why did I do that?
This is the front with added flap and fastening.  Then some random free machining to  add texture.
A little iron on flower that I found at the bottom of my sewing box.  I normally do not rate iron-ons very much.  However, this is a really good one!
Plus a "Sew a little Happiness" label too.
I made a little pouch to go on the inside back cover to hold small items such as crochet hooks, tape measure etc.  
I still need to add a few more things, such as a small pincushion, labels for different types if needles and possibly a scissors pocket.  However, I wanted a follow up post to the embroidery one as it did say that I had plans for it.
I am in the process of developing this to make some for the new website.  As you can see it is quite big as I want to be able to take it to my embroiderers guild classes without having to take half of my sewing room. with me.
I shall be back with pictures of the additions once they have been completed.
It has been a very long week and the weather has been soooo unpredictable. Sun? Rain? Boots? Shoes?   Basically, whatever I had on was not the right thing.
Heyho!  ballet run tomorrow as hubby is working away.  Then I think it is Mummy and Sophie time.
I love that time.
This is also one of this months OPAM 2012 finishes.

That embroidery is really lovely. Look forward to seeing the finished make.
Thank you for visiting and commenting - like you I do't mind change as long as it works and improves things. Your method seems like a good way to go.
Have a lovely weekend, we have some sun!
