*NEW* Pocket Full of Dreams

I imagine a young girl, of the Victorian age, with a book full of images to entertain her free hours. A book full to the brim with exotic people, animals, and flowers. Her vibrant imagination happily wanders the globe, but she knows that most likely the course of her life will follow the path of those that have gone before her. Her family simply cannot afford the extravagance of travel, and she fears that she is destined to remain on her native soil.

So she stitches some of those images from her dreams into a little pouch in which to carry her small tools and treasures.

This little sewing pouch is meant to be both useful and decorative. A sweet design to take along with you on your adventures both near and far.

Stitch Count: 50 x 150
Model stitched on Zweigart 28ct. Toasted Almond linen

Using flosses from The Gentle Art: 0420 Gold Leaf, 0511 Country Redwood, 7007 Cidermill Brown, 7060 Picnic Basket, 7080 Endive, 7092 Otter Creek

Additional materials needed:
Bias tape for edging.
Cotton fabrics for needle square and lining.

This design is now available in my etsy shop, and will be going out to my distributors and the shops on my automatic shipments list soon. If you prefer to bypass etsy and order directly through me, you can send me an email:
