I made this Elizabethan sweet bag when I saw the instructions in a magazine. I stitched it on to fine linen, with gold thread to outline the pattern. The flowers and fruits are largely in stumpwork. My favourite bits were the blackberries, with a few added beads, and the snail which is a 40 wrap bullion knot! The bag is lined with silk.

Gosh, that's beautiful! I love the blackberries too, and that gold chain-stich is so delicate looking.
