Angel Heart hoop pocket and tutorial...

Last year I shared a step by step tutorial on how to stitch my 'split applique' technique and it was very popular.
The little angel wings I used as my example were too cute not to feature on a project so I used the block inside a patchwork frame and made a simple pocket for storing embroidery hoops...

The pocket would also serve you well as a little project pouch to keep a stitchery and threads in one place as you work on your project...



The PDF pattern is HERE in my shop now as an instant download and includes all the instructions you'll need for stitching the sweet applique angel heart block and for sewing the patchwork hoop pocket...


If you need help with the applique angel heart don't worry!
My tutorial from last year is still available HERE...


This would make a lovely gift if you pop a hoop inside and a few threads before wrapping, don't you think?

It's Mr E's final day off before he's back at work again so we're heading out west to take photos of my quilts in the countryside. Miss Merri will of course be traveling with us so I may have to include her in a few photos, and I know you won't mind...

  4. Cute pocket, Jenny, and a great idea for a project bag, even without a hoop. I know you're having a great last day out in the country, and I look forward to the pictures, including Merri.

  9. Jenny this is a beautiful project you have designed and shared with us today! I went and read your tutorial; adding the chain stitch between the two pieces is such a excellent choice for adding a delicate touch that helps to hide the tiny space left between the two applique shapes. Thank you so much for sharing this special project with your wonderful touch of creativity! Have a wonderful creative day!

It's always nice to receive feedback on a blog post, so *thank you* for taking time to comment!
I will try to reply via email unless you are a 'no reply blogger' which means you'll have to check for my reply in the comments. Of course, life is a rather hazardous activity, isn't it? So if I don't respond to your comment that's the reason why - life simply stepped in...
hugs
Jenny
