Firstly, I will add to the previous praise by saying this is simply nothing less than a tremendously stunning bag.

But secondly, what are the bags dimensions? It looks like a pretty good sized bag for me and would like to make one of similar size.

Hi katya, I hope to put up the bags details by the end of the day for those who are intrested, thanks for you fab comments.

Hi NorwegianGal, I used a six stranded floss. I used 3 diff colours of pink for the flowers and a light and dark brown for the branches. Not sure of there colour name or number not much left of them now. I used a back stitch for the most part and I made up the stitch of white stamen part of the flower, and French knot for the anthers of the flower.
Hope this helps

Jordy's bag is the guru of all bag tut's https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=32204.0
& Muchachak bag was my main inspiration for this bag without the zips https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=28160.0

There is a clasp tut some where out there.

Its a bit weird have this wee tut here but people have asked for details of how i made the bag.

Thanks again too Jordy & Muchachak for their inspiration

What a stunning bit of embroidery, and in such nicely contrasting colors!  The bag as a whole is beautiful, and I would love to carry a purse like that around!  I'm jealous!

Wow, that is really cool! you are soooooooo talented. did you use an embroidery machine or did you do it by hand?

I've lost my sanity; can I borrow yours?

Wow, now that takes talent!  Beautiful job.  I love the embroidery.  Did you free hand it?

SEW HOT!  you rock it baby!  that's one of those projects that you give away with a dead tight grip and the recipient has to forcefully tear it from you. You Gotta make at least another for yourself.
