FlossTube # 9 Harvest Light Stitching

Monday, July 25, 2016

Hello Everyone!

I was recently cruising the world wide web of cross stitching and was watching floss-tube aka you-tube videos and seen a tutorial from Primitive Stitcher on how to make a fabric bag which she shows her version in a  step by step in a video tutorial. I decided to try and make one for myself early this morning because I couldn't sleep. So I watched  her tutorial on her version of it  and also went to the site that she gave credit too here Craftsy. The pattern is by Hearts and Bees   and the other to give credit to is Kelby Sews
The tutorial that Primitive Stitcher did was very easy to follow. I thought she did amazing!
            I thought I was being very careful about how the pattern on the fabric was being right side up and apparently I wasn't careful enough, the birds on this particular fabric were upside down AND right side up. and of course sewing my first fabric bag the birds are upside down x sigh x eh well I can always make another one BUT next time I am choosing a SOLID color fabric. This was fabric I had laying around with no specific plans to use for anything. I'm not really a liker of this type of print but I thought it would look cute as a bag to hold my fat quarter material in. Ok Ok enough of me babbling here's my fabric bag and I hope that you will find Hearts and Bees and Primitive Stitcher's tutorial very helpful. I know I did!

For my followers..... A Freebie from me to you

As ya'll know I'm not a designer but....... I've had this design mulling around in my head for a couple of weeks and decided a couple of days ago I would try designing it. So 3 colors become a design. It was thinking,  editing , color change 3 times, edit some more until I felt satisfied with the idea for 2 days.
It became real yesterday evening as I started stitching it, halfway through I decided on 1 last color change after a floss toss. So here is the finish. If you are a follower of my blog and would like this freebie please email me at -   In the subject line please put Ort Jar Pattern. I will NOT share your email with anyone. This is to show my appreciation to you for following and joining me on my  cross stitch journeys. :)  Happy Stitching and may Mr. Frog stay away!
