Mimi's Tape Measure


Mimi's Tape Measure by Olde Colonial Designs
Stitched with materials from the kit



Isn't this cute? I've really enjoyed stitching it, and it wasn't as fiddly as I thought it might be to make it up. A lovely little kit. Thanks to Cathy for gifting it to me a while ago.


There's an over-one alphabet round the sides and more over one bunnies on the front and on the fob. Very spring-like.

I have the chart, instructions and leftover thread (probably enough to stitch it again) to trade if anyone would like it. I also have a few other charts for trade on my trade list.

P.S. Yes, I left off the tassel. I thought it looked good as it was and the little fob bit was enough :)

  1. Very pretty Nicki! I see you left off the tassel - I might cut the one off mine because it gets in the way a bit.
