Here are a few of the bags I made earlier in the year while doing 'bag therapy'. Some were made using oddments of kimono silk.
My favourite of these recent bags, however is a simple embroidery, based on one of the very first things I made at primary school - a hand-towel with an edge made by weaving coloured thread under and over the loose threads of a waffle-weave. I inserted a panel of waffle-weave into this gingham check and just picked up the threads in a zig-zag. It is very relaxing embroidery.
