I tried a patchwork one for variety and then I thought these small fabric spaces were the perfect spot for a little free motion stitching. I took a couple of classes earlier in the spring and really should practise and build on what I learned there. I tried a couple of floral motives and really started enjoying the stitching instead of being rather afraid of lowering those sewing machine teeth!
I like how they turned out so now I'm going to move on to some other motifs - birds, apples, pears and cherries are calling to me! And Mum liked her gift and is at least putting some of her bits and bobs in them. We'll see how long that lasts! I crocheted a jam jar cover for her pens and pencils too as she's a great crossword fan and can never find a pen!
