PATCHWORK LOVES EMBROIDERY S.A.L. - Project # 4 - Sewing Bag

I had this one made well in advance of this weeks link-up.  I knew it would be a very busy time with Jakes 1st birthday coming up and my sewing girls weekend away. (I cant post about this yet, there's still more girls to go on one in October and its a secret).  Had a fantastic time, worked really hard and I promise to show you what we made later.

Back to the Sew-A-Long, for my fourth project, I decided on the Sewing Bag with drawstring.

My girlfriend in Queensland bought some material for me at a really good price (who can resist a bargain) and sent it down to me so I thought, perfect for my little bag.

It is a combination of oranges, yellows and browns.  Certainly a little bit different.  Surprisingly the redwork panel actually went quite well with the colours so that was a success.

I was a little disappointed with the placement of the stitching panel.  I should have measured more accurately because the bag actually sits on the stitching a little bit.

Love the drawstring topper, it gives heaps more room in the bag for whatever you choose.  I think I will use it to take my latest sewing project around with me.

PS  For those who love hand embroidery, Jenny from ELEFANTZ is starting a Stitchery Club, why not check it out.

Dear Dawn,
your bag looks great, so does your stitching. The colors fit perfect.
I had the same problem with centering the stitching, although I had already moved it up a little. We learn with each project we make.

Dawn that fabric is pretty! You're right, the redwork looks great with it. The placement on the panel of my first bag a little off, so you are in good company. ;) Great job!

Love the bag Dawn, great colours
Same thing happen to mine, need to place the stitchery higher and not in the middle.
Also, I think the 2" seam to box the corners was a bit to much...
