but no one guessed that
it is a handbag !
Now I am finished and can show it.
This photo you saw in the last post photo is the front pocket..........
I tinted the designs with crayon because I did
not want the embroidery to look like "dish towel"
embroidery. Tinting fills in large areas and
allows me to accent it with embroidery stitches.
I had to add a beaded dragonfly.
and a colorful
I love floral scallops and added this to the top of
although the inside of the handbag looks good, I did not want
the threads of the embroidery to get snagged by keys or
to get stained by a leaky ink pen....
so I chose a colorful print fabric to line the
inside of the bag
This butterfly and rose fabric was perfect to use as a liner......
don't you think so?
This is a very sturdy canvas bag and I love the black
bottom and straps. The thick canvas was very tiring
on my hands to stitch, so I am beyond glad I am finished with this.
Thank all of you for your sweet comments and for playing along
by trying to guess.
I think I am in the mood for cross stitch now and am
planning on working on a couple of cross stitch projects that
need to be finished.
How about you?
What are you keeping your hands busy with?
Painting, gardening, sewing, quilting, or embroidery?
I would love to hear!
