This tote was my first embroidery project (yay! It was so much fun too!) and a present for my buddy, Kategirl! It was based off of something from her wists, so I take absolutely NO CREDIT for the design but I can't find the picture I based it off of now Sad Please, if you know which this came from, PM me or post the link here so I can give the proper credit!!  Grin

The tote was hand made be me, after I embroidered the canvas. This was probably the most rewarding bag I have ever made. I am STILL so happy with it!!









I didn't get a picture of the inside- but it's a green and purple polka dot Smiley

What do you guys think, should I keep trying to embroider? lol!

yep yep! Keep stitching! the design is REALLY cute - the only thing I can think of that would possibly improve it is maybe to use the stitch you used for the tree branch to outline the birds.

I know! Slip stitch is so much more fun to do than back stitch -  and your slip stitch looks really good. nice and even with no gaps at the start of the 2nd stitch.

I've been embroidering since high school and I STILL can't do French knots correctly. I'll be using beads from now on - that's such a great idea.

Aww it's so nice!
I was just going to comment how I liked the stitch you used for the birds when placed next to the branch Tongue ... makes it seem a bit different.

Thank you! I really appreciate the comments!
I have a few Sublime patterns I bought years ago and never had the guts to try- maybe it's time to try them! Cheesy
