A couple of weeks ago I posted images of a bag project, where I used spray paint with freezer paper resists. When I last wrote about this project I hadn't decided whether to embroider the resisted shapes or not. Of course I couldn't resist (if you pardon the pun) stitching them, as I found the perfect embroidery thread in my stash. A skein of hand dyed embroidery floss from Oliver Twists Fibres that I got in Birmingham last August. I mean, feast your eyes on this:
(The fabrics in the background are from Liberty, and I am saving them for something special.)
So, here I am stitching away. In fact it was fairly quick, as I did just a running stitch. I love running stitch. Simple, yet effective.
This little bag is perfect for holding my yarn when I knit or crochet:
One handle is shorter, and forms a simple knot when it's slipped over the longer handle:
And If you're curious about the crocheted thing dangling from the bag, it ended up in this project (which is still in progress):
Have a great day, and thanks for dropping by!
