Today I am sharing what I made with the beautiful collection Midsummer Meadow from Riley Blake Designs, designed by Katherine Lenius.
Well of course it had to be another Stitch and Go Case! I do hope you are not getting bored of them!? I had fun with this one. It was a chance to make one without trying to work out dimensions, or take step by step photos. I had originally planned to make a Catch all Caddy a By Annie’s pattern, but I’m not going to lie, the pattern intimidated me ever so slightly! I didn’t want to cut into the fabric only to get it wrong and then having nothing to write about! At least I have the pattern now, and one day I shall brave it!
I may have gone a little butterfly crazy on this one (is that a thing!?), I couldn’t help it, I love the print and the pretty florals co-ordinate with it beautifully. I decided to add some foundation pieced butterflies too using a free pattern by Lillyella Stitchery. Not the most elegantly pieced butterfly in the world, but at a tiny 5″ square I struggled to get it “perfect”.
I was fresh out of clear vinyl but do have a rather large stash of glittery vinyl, I love the sparkly effect it gives the case!
Another FPP butterfly. I had intended this to be for the front, but thought the background a little “too busy” and the butterfly looked a little lost. I couldn’t however let it sit an orphan block pile and it just so happened to be the right size for the vinyl zip pocket.
I had good fun adding little extra details here and there.
I know I am probably a little biased but I am so pleased with how handy this case is! I need to invest in some more hoops so I can keep one in each, it is perfect to stash everything away and have it ready to go whenever I need to. An easier way to sneak off with some stitching when in need of escaping the madness!! The opportunites of adapting it and making it your own are endless, and I have plenty of plans to make more!
The pattern is available in my shop here. Midsummer Meadow is available in fabric shops this month.

This is so pretty. The butterflies are just lovely, I haven’t been brave enough to try FPP yet. x
