I embroidered this paisley on a little black bag for a swap earlier this summer.  I was inspired by another paisley post on craftster where someone drew their paisleys free-hand and just had fun embroidering.  I did the same thing with this one -- making color and stitch decisions as the design evolved.

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

That's really pretty - you could put that on so many things- a bag, jeans, etc.

The color scheme came together really nicely!  I can't believe you didn't plan that out ahead of time.  I have a place in my heart for paisley, and this one definitely fits in. Great job!
