It has been a miserable wet day here so I've been playing. This Swirly Unicorn is what I've come up with. She can be made in one hooping (180 x 300 hoop) or two hoopings (130 x 180 or 160 x 260.) Find her in Engineered in Stitches.
I was asked to design an ITH patchwork case for an I-Pad mini. (As I don't have one, I made a mock-up with a cereal packet!) The design is really a clutch bag in two sizes, made to be a snug fit for a 7 inch tablet or an I-Pad mini but could have many
Update. My big sister told me off because the doll had no shoes. I hope she is now satisfied! I made this little jointed rag doll (ITH) with "built in" underwear two or three years ago and I found her when I was having a bit of a clear out. I tho
A gift for a yoga loving friend. The basic ITH A6 notebook cover is my own (available from Engineered in Stitches), but I added the yoga dog from Embroidery Library. The outer cover is made from linen ( recycled trousers) and the flaps and lining were fro

Update - version 2 now added. I've had a complete rethink on the engineering (and made it a bit wider.) It is now much easier to turn through and has less bulky seams.) First draft of a design that was buzzing around my mind whilst doing some coastal wa
In the hoop tablet case. I have a Samsung 7 inch tablet, but have been asked for a design to make one for I-pad mini which I think is a bit bigger. Unfortunately the design will need just a bit bigger hoop than 200 x 300 so I'll be back to the drawing bo
I wonder how many of you remember the octagonal twist design I did a couple of years ago. I thought I would see how it worked stretched to fill my 230mm x 300mm hoop. I rather like it and will use these as placemats. When he who criticises saw the first o
