This week I did one of the pockets that will be inside the sewing caddy hussif. It is the pocket that will hold my stitchers templates.
I managed only a small bit of stitching this week as my class has been keeping me busy. As anyone who has taken any of my classes knows I try and respond to everyone. With 170 people in the class that keeps me at the computer!

For those that simply land here as a result of a search engine or because you have not dropped in for a while a hussif is a sewing roll or sewing kit or caddy but I gave a more detailed answer here . This is a min challenge where the idea is that people design their own hussifs. Any style of quilting or embroidery is acceptable just make your hussif the hussif you have always wanted to own! The is no deadline but aim for quality or give yourself a space for experimentation not simply tick off another project. I presented some informal guidelines here.
For those who do crazy quilting and working a hussif dont forget my give away tutorial on how to work decorative crazy quilt seams

Have you seen my book?
My book The Visual Guide to Crazy Quilting Design: Simple Stitches, Stunning Results shares practical methods about how to design and make a crazy quilt. I teach how to balance colour, texture and pattern, in order direct the viewers eye. I show you how to build decorative seam treatments in interesting and creative ways using a handful of stitches. My book is profusely illustrated as my aim is to be both practical and inspiring.
