I made this to store my work-in-progress cross stitch. The cross stitch is rolled up inside which is a much nicer thing to do than just stuffing it into the sewing basket like an unloved rag. The tube is just a cardboard mailing tube. And I have Meshell to thank for the lovely indigo dyed shibori fabric. She did a few sessions at Uni on indigo dyeing and kindly took in some pieces to dye for me that I scrunched and tied at home first.
I've been wanting to try a bit of Hawaiian applique, but I'm not a fan of needle turn applique so this is fused instead and free motion stitched around the edge.
