The lacy embroidered pattern is from the Romantic Sampler by Angie, with a few changes made and a sprinkling of tiny pearl beads added to decorate the front.
I am trying to use up odds and ends of fabric, so I used a small piece of 28ct Brittney cream for this design and the velvet and silk are from my stash - why does it never seem to shrink? I know this is just a teeny bit of stitching, but it seems as though I have been ` using up my stash´ for years now with no outward sign of it diminishing.
Here is a close up. The colour is very difficult to photograph, it´s neither green nor blue.
I added a couple of beads to the ends of the drawstring cording. They really should have been pearls but I didn´t have any that would thread two cords.
I started out making a pink pouch but wasn´t very pleased with my sewing up efforts, so I went on to make the green one which I´m happier with - done with more patience of course.
I wonder what everyone else in this Smalls Sal has stitched? must go and have a look, as each month there are many different designs, and if you are interested, the button on my sidebar will take you to the Stitching Lotus where all the information is.
