OK, so I got my package from Trifarina today and, in short, it's awesome.

She sent me a binder that she covered with embroidered felt, as well as a sewing roll for my pins and needles (that has a ribbon loop on it so that I can just snap it into the binder).

The front of the binder and sewing roll:



Close up of the binder embroidery. Where it's white it's cut out, making little eyelets:



And here's the back of the sewing roll when it's spread out:



Inside the binder are plastic sleeves that I can use to organize patterns, one of which she already thoughtfully filled with copies of Chinese papercuts. But wait, there's more, she also included a little felt pouch with a cd that has hundreds of images -- everything from vintage ads to flowers to rubber stamps to crop circles.

The pink and brown is a color combination I'm completely enthralled with right now and I'm always crazy for any new way to get myself organized.

Thanks Trifarina. You're a kicka** swap partner -- and your french knots aren't too shabby either. Now, I must go browse all my goodies and plot my take over of the world ... er ... next craft project.

That is really great stuff. I never would have thought to cover a binder with felt and embroider it. What a great idea! I've been thinking of making myself a little needle book too...and now I feel like I need one.

Love the color combos, cut work, and everything about these items really!

I'm so glad you like everything GatsbyGirl!!!

I'm away from my main stash of supplies right now so I was a bit worried the idea would lose something in translation. 

I can't wait to get my package this weekend!

Weeeeeee! Received a sweet package from tejer today! Inside were a handkerchief embroidered with a blue bird, a tea towel embellished by a tree scene, and a cool Sublime Stitching pattern set called Spaced Out, which I've actually been eyeing for some time. Hurrah!

All together:

Detail of tree tea towel (trea towel?):


Tejer's embroidery is enviably neat and precise and I love the colours she used. Thank you so much, and thanks again for organizing!

It's called Atomique now: http://sublimestitching.com/atomique.html

I saw a post on a board here where someone had embroidered the patterns onto a space-themed purse. It was so cute! I wish I'd bookmarked it.
