I got your back
I also made a matching pincushion, and some shrink plastic pins with spirograph and boomerang shapes and a tiny rocket ship. Whee! I really like the little plastic spirographs, and I think I'll make a bunch more for jewellery.
The embroidery designs and the pins were inspired by patterns on some of the vintage dishes in my kitchen, and by a table I have that my uncle Delmar made in the early sixties for my mom using diner-table formica. The fabric I was sent for this project is so amazing I was tempted to keep it for myself.
So I'm finally finished and ready to send it all off tonight, a few days late but hopefully worth the wait; I had so many ideas for goodies to fill it with that I had to get choosy because only so much would fit, and as it is the pouch is so full of stuff I can barely get it closed. I hope she likes it!

The things I have seen for this project absolutely astound me. I didn't even know about the project until I started seeing FO's in people's blogs. Yours is my FAVORITE so far. It is fabulous.

I love the pincushion! I gotta try the shrinky-dink (sp?) thing someday...

Ooh! I love seeing my fabric in action -- I was too afraid to cut it up myself so this will make me more brave in the future. Fabulous stitching, too. YAY!
