(and I am just publishing this now on tuesday evening cause somehow the edit/post/schedule thing is proving too difficult for me this evening....)
I embroidered this in stem stitch on organic cotton poplin. A wonderful fabric that I want to make just about everything out of! And I made the embroidery into a handwork bag for my Chloe Anne. I am sure I have said already how much I enjoyed working on this, and I was so happy to find just the right fabrics in my closet to go with the cream colored poplin. (These red and white fabrics have also had me unusually excited about upcoming Valentine's Day, and related sewing...)
And I really do so love this bag! If it was mine it would be one my most favorite things. It is also quite full as you can perhaps tell. It has two pockets inside, and it turned out much larger than I intended, though I really didn't intend (measure) anything, it just kind of all came together.
I am very happy to have created such a gift for my dear oldest child.
