I have been working a little bag with a violet motif from Inspirations 69 (Violet Times). It is on a heavy natural linen.
It took me several nights to complete the embroidery and I needed to use my magnifier at times.
The bag is lined with a mauve floral, with the linen folded over to form an edge inside.
The tricky part, for me, is the crocheted edging around the top, and the crocheted cord to go through it. I have only basic crochet stitches and not much practice, so this will be a challenge.
The top edge was OK - a basic 6 chain loop then 4 stitches through the cloth on the first round, then a second round with a little picot on the top of each scallop.
The threaded cord was more challenging, since my crochet knowledge doesn't extend to triples but I got something resembling the picture with the help of one of my mother's old crochet books.
The result is certainly pretty. Maybe I will keep it and use it for scissors and threads.
