Flickr Stitch Along

I have enjoyed being part of the Flickr group "New Embroidery with Vintage Patterns" The group has been hosting Stitch Alongs with themed vintage patterns. I did Stitch Along 1 and the Christmas one. The theme for #4 is Saturday/Baking/Cooking. My embroidery pattern is from French Knots. I decided to make my embroidery into a little bag to use to carry my current embroidery project in. I like to have something to hand stitch on in the evenings and I keep my projects in zip-lock bags. I think this bag is much sweeter!

I used Monica's (Happy Zombie) Poochie Bag tutorial for my bag. A wonderful pattern!! I so appreciate people who share their talents with others!! I didnt do so well with my straps and had to take an ice-cream and warm brownie break.

My new Poochie Bag hanging on our Christmas tree that is still out in our front yard.

Poochie Bag (i love saying that) filled with my next embroidery project. A perfect fit!
