I've been having a sweet time sewing with Penny Rose's wool...it's amazing!
The wool I used looked so beautiful with the Isabella fabrics and matched perfectly.
I loved the colors and the quality of the wool, too.
I used these Penny Rose fabrics and wool to make
A Little Round Bag
Size: About 6 1/2" wide and 6 1/2" deep
Add a flower for a little fancier look.
Making this flower with the wool was so easy!
Cut three 2" circles and five 3" circles.
Cut the circles in half. Use only nine of the 3" half circles and five of the 2" half circles.
Run a basting stitch through the flat side of the halves with one length of thread.
I use embroidery thread to baste the halves--it's stronger than
regular thread so when you pull the threads to gather it holds up better.
Pull the thread to gather the halves.
Tack the first and last half together with a small stitch.
Repeat with the same process with the 2" halves.
Place a few small stitches to hold the 3" flower in place on the bag.
Stitch the 2" flower on top of the 3" flower and add a button to finish the flower.
You can download the PDF patterns for the bag and needle holder at my Craftsy store HERE.
The needle holder...
The wool is perfect inside to hold the needles and pins.
This is a great bag for taking to a retreat or to give as a gift.
It stands up by itself, which makes it a whole lot of fun to take anywhere.
