Beaded Featherstitch and a Whole Lot More

Beaded featherstitch is fun, adds some bling. But this double project, Lingerie and Jewelry Cases, has a whole lot more.
Silk ribbon embroidery (Spider Web Roses, Straight and Japanese Ribbon stitches, French Knots and Lazy Daisy) and Embroidery Stitches (Blanket and Chain stitches, Beaded Featherstitch).

But also in this double project class I cover additional extra sewing techniques of: making piping and applying into a seam; making a "stuffed" ring roll using the Fasturn tool (a great item to have in your notions stash); making a button loop; decorating and making a covered button (Lingerie Case);
and last but not least, making a covered snap for the ring roll.

The inside of the Jewelry Case....notice the flower that 'covers' the covered snap of the ring roll. The lace divides the one side into two pockets. There are a total of 5 pockets.
 I love the front of the Lingerie Case. It's just so delicate and feminine! It's a nice and convenient way to pack underclothes (and keep TSA off your things).
 The Jewelry Case is the perfect way to pack your jewelry when traveling.
There are so many unique projects to stitch up when you think about it and these two projects are perfect to have on hand when traveling.
