Hi, do you love to create beautiful embroidered, quilted, crocheted or hand sewn items? Me too! I've been teaching quilting for the past 30 years and fell in love (seriously in love!) with crazy quilts just a few years back. My first book, Embellishing Crazy Quilts, contains dozens and dozens of seam treatment diagrams and embroidery designs. I also love to add silk ribbon and bead to my works. It became very frustrating as a teacher to reference good instructional material for silk ribbon embroidery and other techniques. So, I now design and create my own stitch guides, templates, and patterns. I hope you will find something here on my Craftsy site that you like. Some are free as instructional handouts...and some are for a minimal fee to offset the cost of my time and supplies. I truly hope you find all of these enjoyable!View all patterns by designer (12) »
This pattern includes a full size color embroidery design, a black white tracing design, instructions on embroider stitches used, and instructions on constrution of the basic tote bag once the embroidery panel is finished.
The tote bag is for a solid fabric. However, you can also use a patchwork approach then trim the completed group to the appropriate pattern size for the front/back/sides/pockets of the tote bag as desired.
The embroidery panel can also be used alone as a pillow, a framed design piece, on clothing, etc.
Pockets abound in this design. A large full size pocket on the back, elastic pocket on one side, and two pockets inside give plenty of places to tuck things away. One side is designed for rings to be attached for clipping keys/etc or could also be a standard pocket instead.
The embroidery is done in simple stitches that are basic so that even beginners can understand how to create them.
