This was one of the first things I made, when I learned to embroider. I have been keeping my floss and needles, etc. in it for the past few years.


It's kind of funny how gross this bag is considering that I have made soooo many totes for other people. I decided it was time to treat myself to a new embroidery bag:







I am in love with the variegated floss! See the birdie how he changes colors.

By the way, I got the pattern from the flickr group Hoop Love --The greatest source for vintage patterns, IMO!

That is adorable - what an improvement!  Wink  The variegated floss just "makes" it.  Great job!

That's an awesome pattern, and perfect for a craft bag. Nice stitching!

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.
