Finished the bag


Well, I finally got the bag finished. It is the pattern given to the Stitcher’s Angels by May Britt. Of course I had to mess with it just a bit. Added a frame of the contrast fabric around the stitchery, and made it too wide. The contrast fabric looks like it is the main fabric. I also did a little bit of quilting on the stitchery. It seemed to poof out from the batting. I didn’t have any cording, so I crocheted a chain with some ribbon yarn that I had and used that instead of cording. I think it matches the bag pretty well. All in all, I am very happy with the way it turned out. I wish I could take better pictures. I think I move just as I am taking the picture. I guess I need to set up a tripod and see if that helps. Tomorrow I am going to try to get started on the pincushion that is the next Stitcher's Angel patten. I won't be using chenille, because I don't have any!
