Project: Seeds of Love
Designer: Brenda Ryan of Victoria
Type of needlework: Embroidery
Inspiration magazine issue #51 project, pages 66-69
Comments: This is the kind of project that are hard for me to resist, something useful and beautiful at the same time.
Brenda has created two lovely designs in two different sizes with this theme. One is just right to serve as a little coin purse and the bigger one looks wonderful as a fabric envelope to store things inside.
I have kept the little coin purse for myself and made the fabric envelope as a gift for a friend. The project was just as much fun to make as it looks. I have been wanting to make a few more of them using different fabrics and I need to make sure that I do. They are so well worth the time spent on them, which is not that much considering how good they look.
