Izzy's Drawstring Bag

Project Description

What are you most proud of? My hand embroidery. I was going to cheat and use my Singer monogrammer but it wouldn't cooperate. Might be broken. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Have fun choosing the perfect fabric for your recipient.

What you will need

  • I had 1/2 yard of the "Boyd's Bears" fabric which I fussy cut to show off the bears.:-) The solid pink and the floral lining fabrics were also from my stash. Another project that cost nothing to make.

This is adorable! I think your hand embroidery is better than your Singer's would be. Makes it very personal. Gonna have to remember that the next time I see fancy names/initials and wish I had an embroidery machine... Once again, you've inspired me!
crazihippichic answered:
I am starting to like hand embroidery, Jean. I agree that it makes the project more personal. Embroidery machines are nice but to me it seems like cheating.
