Hello! My name is Hope. I started my crafting adventure by helping my Mom make Christmas ornaments from Montgomery Ward at age 6. She showed me how to take a straight pin, load on beads and a sequin so she could put it onto Styrofoam shapes. I still have those ornaments years later. After that, I went on to learn how to crochet, embroider, sew (somewhat) and make jewelry.
My husband is retired, so I have built an at home business to supplement our income. Treasures In Stitches is slowly gaining momentum. I create quilt and project patterns along with customized machine-embroidered items.
Wishing you an awesome day!
Here's how to find TIS around the web:
I love tote bags! I especially like to make my own so I can choose what it looks like, how it's designed, long handles, short handles, pockets or no pockets, etc.
This is one that I like because it folds up easily for my purse for those times when you need an extra bag.
Easily made from several Fat Quarters, a couple of Jelly Roll strips and some basic notions. I even used 2 Charm Squares to make the Yo-Yos!
The bag sews together quickly and can be embellished in any number of ways - it's a perfect gift when you need something fast.
