When I was little, my absolute favorite toy was my spirograph. I remember sitting for hours at the table experimenting with different wheel and ring combinations. And ink colors. My Dad bought me one of those 16 color pens. I used every drop of ink in it with my spirograph.

I saw this great bag while I was stumbling around on flickr, and decided to make my own version. White bags and I do not get along. They usually end up gray, so I decided to start with a gray bag.


A close up bit of some of the embroidery. (Yeah, not my best stitching, but the overall effect is just fine.)


The finished bag.



I couldn't get very good shots. The lighting was bad and my camera batteries were dying.

Cute!  Did you spirograph and then trace it with your stitches?

Thanks!

I spirographed onto paper. Then I enlarged the designs a bit on my scanner/printer/copier thingy, and transfered them to the bag to stitch. Doing the designs without enlarging them would have taken forever...

This is fantastic!  What delicate stitching.

As a kid I had a 16 colour pen and spirograph too!  Cheesy

That's awesome!  I loved my spirograph too.  The new ones are not as user friendly.  Tongue
