The hussif.



I have just finished an hussif which is a kind of portable sewing pouch to keep my needles, pins, scissors and many other things close at hand when sewing. It has a cushion for the pins, can be placed over the arm of the armchair, folds neatly and is attached with a strap and magnetic button. This is the kind of sewing accesorry I love.



 



The pattern is from Sarah Fielke. It is a free bonus for her BOM 2017 subscribers but it is also available from her website.



I made it using L'Atelier Perdu fabrics. I love how it turned out and I am sure that I will use it a lot and will have it with me wherever I go.



Small quilted items like this one are great to make in between longer projects and it is VERY nice to stitch and finish a project in just one day ;-)

Hope you like it as much as I do.

Thanks for stopping by and do not hesitate to leave a comment if you feel like it as I love reading them and discovering who reads my blog :-)

Until later,

  11. I love the Hussif David, it is very neat. I always read your blog but very rarely comment on any blogs, but seeing as you asked. I like the photo of you in your November 2016 post, you look like you should be fighting terrorists in the SAS rather than stitching such beautiful things - hope that doesn't sound sexist, it's not meant to be.

  15. Here in Pennsylvania I believe they are called "housewife". I have seen some beautiful antique ones. Yours, David, looks so well made and practical. I need one as my sewing supplies are scattered all over. Great idea.

  24. Lovely, David--and I really appreciate seeing it in action on the arm of your chair. I live on Adak Island, Alaska, the farthest West city in /america, almost to Russia and the last inhabited island in the Aleutian chain. I was French Colonial Reenactor prior to coming here. See my blogs, http://18thccuisine.blogspot.com/ and http://the-scarlet-thread.blogspot.com/ I love seeing a man do hand work--some of the best designers, artists and needleworkers were men, St. Aubin comes to mind.
