House!! Sewing swap Part 2

I am a proponent of Slow Stitching. I enjoy the journey and always tend towards detail and handwork. Which brings me to the sewing swap I took part in recently on mysewingcircle.com. I just can’t stop myself spending hours and hours on these projects. But I love it. And so to the reveal…

Here it is all wrapped up. But what is it?! Well…

It’s a fold-out sewing box! Construction was a challenge I must admit and I learnt a lot during its design but I’m really pleased with it. Want to see some details?

The roof nearly killed me and it’s not perfect but hey, it’s a new design! I posted it off to Miss Blossom on Monday. Hopefully she’s got it now….if not, then I hope she’s not reading this!!!!

    It’s absolutely gorgeous! Really love it, you are so clever. Made as a softer structure that would make a lovely toy for children.

    I had puzzled with your earlier “sneak peak” as to what you were making……. it is so gorgeous, what a fun, useful & Kind swap (According to BBC 1 news, it is Kindness Day) She will be over the moon with all the hard work you have put in to it.
