My local branch of the Embroiderer’s Guild always has a social evening for the July meeting. Sometimes we have a small competition. This year we were invited to make Magic Wallets for the competition.
Although I had plenty of notice, I ended up making mine at the last minute.
And instead of keeping it nice and simple, I decided to make my own silk paper and speckle it with gold leaf!
The metal thread that I used in the sewing machine kept jamming and breaking so it all ended up being a bit rushed and stressful. Give me hand stitching anyday!
