Red Hat Society Lady Purse Complete!

I have alot to share with you today! I thought I'd start my post today with some finishes. The Red Hat Society Lady purse is complete now:

Red Hat Lady 1

I love this one so much! It came out so beautiful and perfect! I've added this to my Etsy shop. If you would like to see more photos of it, hop over there and take a peek.

My next finish is this little Spring Chick cellphone pouch:

The beaded crocheted edging at the bottom was made by my mom. I think it looks so pretty! She's made several of these edgings for me as a thankyou for selling some of her things for her.

I was asked what the size is of my cellphone pieces. The actual stitched area is 4 inches wide X 5 inches high. When finished, they measure 4 inches wide X 5 1/2 inches high. I allow an extra 1/2 inch at the bottom for trim.

If anyone wants the Spring pouch, please drop me an email. I'm planning on taking it up to my showcase in Richmond later this week.

Also completed, is the stitching on this pouch:

If you remember, I was asked to make a cellphone pouch without an image on it. I'll do the machine finishing on this tomorrow along with the finishing on the teddy bear pouch and should have a final update on those by the end of the week.

Many of my long time cross stitch followers know that I have several charity organizations that I support. The Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation, Our Children's Circle - Autism Awareness and Pet's In Need, my local no-kill animal shelter.

I've decided to do several charity pieces and donate a portion of the selling price to those charities. The first will be the Breast Cancer Awareness Pouch:

I have a vintage rhinestone pin in the shape of a ribbon. I'll be using that as a focal point on this piece. I plan to do the embroidery and embellishing with pinks & greens. I'll be starting the stitching later today.

Tomorrow, since I'll have my sewing machine out, I'll piece the Autism pouch. Kim, my long-time friend and model stitcher was kind enough to stitch up a cross stitch puzzle piece for me which I designed specifically for the Autism Pouch. The puzzle piece is the symbol for Autism.

My Pets In Need pouch is all sewn up but I'll share that when I get to it.

Once these are all complete, I'll get back to some more purses. And that embroidered peacock piece that I've been wanting to do!

I'm off to do some design work. Check back tomorrow for an update on the Breast Cancer Awareness Cellphone Pouch!

Your cell phone pouches finished up beautifully! I love the fabric block you've stitched for the Breast Cancer pouch!
