I saw the cover of the new book Scandinavian Needlecraft, by Clare Youngs and fell in love with the bag featured.  I drafted my own pattern based on the cover image, blended that idea with inspiration from those red, painted horses you see in Sweden (and Ikea!) and came up with this little bag:







It was such a fun project.  Everything I was doing was a 'first' for me.  I can't wait to make another!

For more info, photos, and the backstory to this project, you can visit me at www.canuckcraft.blogspot.com

Thanks for looking.

I would absolutely love to have a personal swap! I'm interested in jewelry, soap, and anything that inspires you on my Pinterest

Lovely! The colors and floral pattern are divine.

I have the Scandanavian Needlecraft book that you referenced but I've yet to actually make anything from it. Your project may just be the kick in the bootie that I needed.

Thank you for sharing!
