New SAGA Stitches

Three new SAGA Stitches programmes were released at the recent SAGA National Convention in Hampton, Virginia. These new programmes were the results of the SAGA Stitches contest.

The winning entry was a smocked coin purse by Terry Poskay and I was lucky enough to receive a kit to make the purse.

It took very little time to smock and construction was easy as Terry includes wonderful step-by-step directions with photos. My little coin purse is complete and will be a gift for a little girl I know. I plan to make a few more of these as they will use some of my stash fabrics and take very little time to make.

You can purchase the directions from SAGA Stitches for $8. (SAGA Stitches programmes are just the written directions. You provide the materials. They make great chapter programmes).

Visit the SAGA website to see more of these great little projects under SAGA Stitches!

The other new programmes are a baby bib and a smocked thimble pocket.
