I made this cross stitched book /organizer cover about four years ago, circa 2006. After the year has passed, it was stored away inside a box when we moved to our new home.
Recently, as I was doing some spring-cleaning to give more space for my kids’ stuff, I was delighted to find this cross stitched cover still in good condition. I gave it a gentle rinsing and some ironing and it’s as good as new!
I finished the cross stitch and sewing in a hurry and it was really a rough job – just look at the sewing! It was sometime after I learned to use the sewing machine (and I am terribly out of practice now!). The purple cloth is a leftover from my baju kebaya.
I got the patterns from an old book (which I also recently discovered hidden in a box), but I didn’t follow the colour chart. I just used whatever floss I had and liked.
Overall, I was very satisfied with the outcome.
Not bad, huh?
