Roll-up Organizer Pouch (Where needle goes...)
CROSS STITCH PATTERN DESIGNED BY Muriel Berceville
Here's the Roll-up Organizer Pouch , Muriel Berceville's Sampler inspired cross stitch project in a unique round shape. The pouch has plenty of useful space to accommodate your floss and other necessities. There is an extra pocket inside the lining for scissors and needles, as well as a separate Ort-bag for leftover bits of thread and a matching pinkeep.
The pattern features a short poem:
Where Needle goes
Thread always follows
This is the English version of the design, translated from the original phrase in French "Le fil suit toujours l'aiguille".
Designer Muriel Brunet specializes in European Reproduction Samplers of which she has a superb collection. This pattern however is an original design created in the manner of an antique alphabet sampler. The delicate rose button motif in particular is exquisitely designed.
The explanations for mounting the pouch are extremely detailed and will take you step by step through each stage.
The pattern is stitched on 32 ct linen, over 1 thread, using Soie D'alger Silk thread from Le ver à Soie, however you can also substitute DMC floss. A set of two matching floral fabrics is used for the lining and for making the accessories.
