PATCHWORK LOVES EMBROIDERY S.A.L. - Project #5 - Cinnamon Bag

This is our final project for the Gail Pan Embroidery Loves Patchwork Sew-A-Long (boohoo)  What a fabulous time we have had and a terrific bunch of girls joined in.

Thanks to our organizer Martina from Sunshine Quilting who did a great job in linking us up each fortnight.  Also thanks to Christine from Patchwork Allsorts who started a Pinterest Board for this group. 

I think this little bag is one of my favorites, just because I love the colors so much.  They are a bright turquoise matched with a chocolate brown.  I did change the design a little by making a matching drawstring rather than use a cord. 
 

  
As the Sew-A-Long went on, I actually think I improved my embroidery skills.  I am doing much better at needle turning, I can almost get a perfect circle, just a little more practice. 
 
Here are my four other finished projects, very happy that I accomplished them all......... 
 
Finally, a big thanks to all the other bloggers who participated, I really enjoyed meeting you all xxxx
