Definitely my most painful project to date. Stitching canvas was an adventure that bent at least three of my needles >.<
However, the end result was so worth it! I plan on using this as a green shopping bag to keep in my purse. It makes me so happy!





The pattern is from Sublime Stitching's Craft Pad. I used split stitch and satin stitch with four strands of floss for the design. There's also the lovely little iridescent seed beads. The top bits (heads?) of the jellies are a mix of thread colors from the tentacles.
The amount of satin stitch almost killed me. What was I thinking?! It was my first real go at it, so it's not perfect by any stretch of the imagination. The fabric weave didn't help much. Still, it's all held up in the wash so far. Even the beads!

They are so cute! I love the seed beads. How do you think they'll hold with with wear and tear on the bag?

I love the beads, they saved me from french knots! I gave up after the entire knot kept pulling through the fabric.

They held up through one washing already, so I have faith. I think they're stitched on quite well, but I still expect to be replacing beads at some point in the future.
