Inspiration & Embroidery for Me!


After the embroidery show I was officially drained for a couple weeks and wasn't inspired to embroider, maybe it was the cowgirl that took it out of me, but a trip to the Japanese Book Store in Japantown changed everything. When my Mom was visiting we took her out on a girls day and ended up getting boat sushi and seeing bridesmaids (hilarious by the way!) and couldn't resist going into the book store. That place is my kryptonite!

I always get a few embroidery books/magazines while I'm there and can't resist their super cute stationary! My mom was such a sweetie and bought me all sorts of goodies...

My new inspiration!

Rainy Day Change Purse
I instantly fell in love with the rainy day change purse in the bottom left corner; she's just way too cute! My Mom wants the glasses case above, it’s seriously one of the cutest designs ever and once I figure out how I have to make it for her (if you're reading Mom act surprised when I give it to you!)

I love this little lady! I'm so proud of myself for finally practicing my fill-in, I'm getting better ;)

If anyone has any tips on how to attach those metal change purse clasps, please help a stitcher out!

I have seen a few tutorials around about those purse thingys but haven't tried it yet. Will keep my eyes open for one.

Double thanks becky!
I bought a few of the clasps, but they are from a Japanese store and I can't read the directions (common problem in my life)
