A little Sunday Stitching....

Remember the little fairy I sketched and started embroidering a few weeks ago, well I finally got round to finishing her.  She's stitched on a piece of pale pink linen I had lurking in my stash and I used 2 strands of lovely chocolate brown embroidery thread.  She's taking pride of place on a little bag I'm making  for Poppy to take her tap and ballet shoes to her dance classes........

I just need to add a little hand quilting and then it should come together quickly...well that is along as I do not get distracted by Granny squares!  Enjoy your Sunday evening.

  2. Oh now, that is just gorgeous. Your stitching is so neat! I love the simplicity of the design. x

  3. What a gorgeous design. I love the fabrics you have chosen for the bag. Having gone to lots of balllet and tap classes as a little girl I know this will be popular! xxx

  4. Oh my word, she is the prettiest little thing! I love your stitching, your design...the colours! I adore brown and pink together! This is going to be one special ballet bag - can't wait to see the fabrics all sewn up. Thanks for sharing! Chrissie xxx

  5. That's so lovely Sarah, I love the contrast of just the dark against the light.
