Canvas Project from EGA
I'm a member of the Baldy View EGA Chapter that meets in Ontario, California. Our program for the past several months has been little projects that will eventually be used together in a sewing basket. Georgette B. has done a great job pulling this all together. May's project is from an EGA petite project by Margaret Bendig. It will be a little case for scissors and perhaps needles as well. I started it a few days ago. Here is the first little bit of my stitching. As you can see, the entire canvas is only 12 inches long, so it's fairly small. The outer edge is all smyrnas.
Here's a closeup of the smyrnas. They are little stars. Smyrnas make a nice row or border and can easily be made large or small. We're changing the design a little as the original was a little scissor pocket that was closed but we're going to be able to open our little cases. Our June meeting will be about how to finish it.
