I finished the pre-printed Eco-tote last night. I love how it turned out. So bright and colorful. It has been a while since I made something for myself, and this one is for me. I used all 6 strands of floss, I used split stitch, back Stitch, Stem Stitch, Chain Stitich (this was the first time I successfuly executed this stitch), Statin Stitch, and  French knots. Oh, and here eye and freckles are 3 strands of floss, but the outside of her eye is 6 strands.

So cute!
The "extras" make all the difference - e.g. three hearts, not two. Etc.
Isn't it a warm and fuzzy feeling when you finish something for yourself?

Was it difficult to embroider with six strands?

I got it from the sublime stitching website. It came pre-printed with the design on it. I just had to embroidery over it. Here is the link.

It was not too difficult. I used an embroidery needle with the biggest eye I had, and used a needle threader, which was my best friend on this project.

Thanks, so much for looking!

I love this tote and am so bummed that I didn't make it over to Sublime to order one before they sold out.

You did a great job with all the colors and stitches.
