I saw this tutorial on V&Co. and thought I'd give it a whirl. There are well over 1,000 french knots making up that heart. It took days of stitching, and it's REALLY hard to give it away. But, I know I can always make myself another one someday, so I'm happy to send it along to it's new owner soon. I hope they enjoy it!
|I did end up needing a second embroidery floss skein (are they called skeins like yarn?). I used almost the entire second one as well! Holy moly!|
I have also been plugging away at my 241 Tote. I have only ever made one bag before (it was a present for my mom). So, I was a bit nervous about this one. There are a few options for this tote. One involves zipper pockets. That was my original plan. But, then I changed my mind of fabrics so the zippers I bought didn't coordinate anymore, and I ditched the zippers in favor of pockets. I considered still keeping the zippers, but in the end...I just didn't want to mar that lovely Joel Dewberry fabric. :)
|All I bought for this bag was the magnetic snap! :) Working from the stash!!!|
Next up? A name tag. It's going to involve sequins. Yep...that's right! Sequins! Exciting! And then the Art Student Tote. 3 zippers people!!! 3 zippers! AAAHHHH!!!!
What are you working on for QuiltCon? I need to do my link up post with my 5 random things about myself. But...I can't think of 5 random things. Maybe I'll ask my husband for ideas. lol
