Embroidered bag

Hi blogger friends,

I haven´t advanced much this week with my two new started projects, but I did manage to take a few photos of this little embroidered bag I finished last month.


Perhaps it is not so much a bag as a holder and the design is by Dietrolangolo with the tutorial on her blog.  There are two different sides, one embroidered with bullion stitch roses and Algerian eye stitch.



and the under side is all - I think - Algerian eye stitches mixed with tiny beads. This took quite a while to do because I didn´t want to take the thread on the back from one stitch to the next in case you could see that from the right side, so each stitch was fastened off before the next begun.




Both pieces of fabric are lined with pink silk which I found in my stash and then an opening  made by cutting a large cross just on the front side which is then hemmed and edged with lace.




I was undecided whether to use pink or turquoise ribbon to close the bag and eventually decided on the turquoise.
  

I loved making this and shall use it to store hankerchiefs.

Until next week,
Sheryl

  2. The stitching on your little bag is so beautifully delicate and pretty, Sheryl. It must have taken an age to stitch. I love the pink silk lining and your choice of a turquoise ribbon is perfect. Such beautiful stitching, Sheryl.
