This piece of crazy quilting is a part of my latest project which as regular readers will now is a hussif , a type of traditional sewing caddy. This piece will be a pouch/roll that will sit inside the hussif.
If you click on the image you will see a large version.
Last week on my work in progress post, when I wrote about this project I explained how I always do the embroidery and then add beads, buttons and charms. I was at the stage in the process where I was about to start adding beads.
This week I would like to say I have done that and finished the piece so I am ready to move on making 2 internal pockets.
I think readers would like to see and read about some of the details so here they are!

On this section I used half a hand dyed doily. I used procion dyes to dye it and it was added into the seam as I pieced.
The Woven Zig zag chain that I worked over rick rack is a TAST stitch .
The Feathered Up and Down buttonhole (on the left) is also a TAST stitch.
I used my Crazy quilt templates to create the curved lines in this little motif . I traced off the lines using the template then stitched them in stem stitch before adding the silk ribbon fargo roses , feather stitch, French knots and beads.
For the stems of this vine once again I used my Crazy quilt templates to create the curved lines of the vine.

As a side note for those interested in the mini challenge:
The idea is that people design their own sewing caddy or hussif in any style of quilting or embroidery. The is no deadline. I presented some informal guidelines here.
One of the challenges this year on CrazyQuilting International is to create a hussif you may want to combine the two challenges. If you are a crazy quilter and working a hussif dont forget my give away tutorial on how to work decorative crazy quilt seams
