I have finished the last design for my series of embroideries about Peace. But I'm not sure how this is going to stitch out, it could be great or a disaster. Actually, the last saying "Peace is in your hand" is probably the most forceful of all the embroideries in the sentiments it expresses.
I have these embroideries framed, ( in cheap frames) and hung on the wall behind my computer and there are one or two that I think need to be restitched. The designs are good but the choice of stitches selected is not. I think that is a job for the future. I will just be pleased to get them finished at this stage.
After I had designed this I sat down and made up one of the kits I bought in Houston from Odile Bailoeul.
I just love her fabric designs and this backed velvet is fantastic to sew. This is Hercule the cat. (Notice all the feet for my machine are back in the cabinet. I don't want to lose one again.)
The instructions that came with the kit are terrific. Her method of construction is so simple that I had the whole thing finished in under 20 minutes, I need to add a tassel on the zipper yet. Oh Dear! Reading her instructions again I find I have invented another way to construct a bag! I didn't follow her instructions at all!
This is one bag pattern I am going to add to my folio of bags. I will put together a little tutorial when I make the next one.
