Strawberry Harvest

Hello!

On Instagram they are a lot of stitchers that are making project bags.
Looks like the fashion tendence on the cross stitch world right now.

Years ago I made some of this bags, like this one. And this one is 100% hand made, hand sew.

So, why not try to make a project bag with zipper!

First, let me show you my stitching piece:

Design by Barbara Ana Designs – Strawberry Harvest.
Stitched on 40 count linen hand dyed by me with DMC threads.

A small piece, but very lovely!

And now the project bag:

I have my sewing machine since the end of 2014, and I learned to sew by myself (with some help of sewing tutorials on youtube).
I’m really very happy how it turn out. Is not perfect I know. I need to improve a lot.

Tutorials on youtube, if you want to try to make one of this bags:

For the project bag I used two fabrics, a cotton stars/dots fabric and a cotton rose pink; white batting and a pink zipper.

It’ s all for today! Thanks for visiting!

Happy stitching,
