I made this project bag for a Ravelry friend who loves The Lord Of the Rings.
 I found the design for sweat pea leaves in a Golden Hands book from the 70s and according to a translation website, the runes at the bottom spell out the word peace.
It took a weekend to make, cotton on calico. I used mainly running stitch and chain stitch.

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

Your swirls are so pretty! Great job.

Very pretty. Especially the leafs.
I wonder tough what translation you used. Try google "futhark", and you'll get lots of results for the common runic alphabets.

Well... it was late at night, and the first site translation site I found. Let's say I am going for an overall look rather than grammatical correctness!
