In addition to sewing and crochet, I also enjoy cross stitch. I usually toss my current cross stitch project in a basket or plastic zipper bag. Somehow those methods of storage seem to bother me. Perphaps it is because I can sew and I feel a bit guilty about using such conventional means for storage solutions!
When Patterns by Annie released their new, updated version of the Project Bags pattern, I ordered it immediately to stock in my Etsy shop.
I started a sweet little fall cross stitch project a few weeks ago, and whilst listing this pattern in my shop and holding it in my hand, I had an epiphany! Make one of these in which to carry my cross stitch supplies! (I bet you already knew that’s where I was going with this story)
Here it is housing my fall stitchery:
The pattern includes instruction for four sizes. I stitched up the size large and I explain my reasoning in the below video. The background (mermaid fabric) is from a previous project. Oh, and I made that cute tassel with my granddaughter.

Until next time, Happy Sewing!!!
