I’m Still in the Closet

Who knew there would be so much to do in one master bedroom closet? But here I am still having an up-close and personal relationship with this space. I hope my husband doesn’t get jealous.

Last February’s challenge for the In Stitches Sew-along group was Amy Butler’s bedside organizer and sleep mask. As this was way before my blogging days, here is the photo of my effort.

I have a large piece of that fabric in my stash which works perfectly for another closet project. I’m making shoe sachets and filling them with French lavender.

My project originates from
Romantic Touches: Charming Handmade Projects for Every Room.

In the book, they painted a design on each sachet. Instead, I simply drew my initial freehand and embroidered it in white. Here’s my sample test set, today I’m making the others I need.

As strange as it might seem, I still have a few other closet projects to complete before I come out of there.

You are too funny... hanging out in the closet! However, the shoe sachets are so lovely. You have such good taste choosing fabrics... and with the 'small touches'. These are elegant!

Fun chatting with you!
