I picked up the pig fabric on sale at a quilt shop & I've been saving it for something special.  Then a couple of days ago while I was embroidering and feeling grumpy because I didn't have enough pockets in my purse to carry my project with me I got the idea for this workbag & of course had to drop everything to make it (cause I'm ADHD like that).  I put in lots of little pockets for holding small stuff like embroidery thread or tatting shuttles & now I really want to keep it for myself.  Guess I'll just have to make another one Smiley




For this last pic I turned it inside out so you can get a better ideas of what the pockets look like Smiley

A great idea! Did you machine embroider the pigs onto the tan part?

Cute!  I have lots of different projects too (knitting, crocheting, embroidery, etc) and the pockets look perfect for keeping everything organized!  The pigs are lovely too.  (Although I think they look a bit hedgehog-y).

Very nice job!

@kwailty570 - The pigs are mostly appliqued felt. I hand embroidered the details & they are fused on with Heat-N-Bond, and then I also hand stitched around the edges to make sure they stay stuck.  Sometimes I machine stitch the edges when I applique, but with something this small it's actually faster to stitch by hand & I can do it while I'm sitting in the car waiting to pick up my son from school.  I've got a close up pics here:  http://www.flickr.com/photos/saysayohplaymate/4076419741/in/set-72157622736905572/

@CrazyCristyC - My mom thinks they are hedgehogs too, but I'm thinking since they are chasing mushrooms they must be pigs, or maybe wild boars Smiley

that bag is so cute!

my boyfriend's sister would love a bag like this, but probably a different fabric to fit her likes.
