Embroidered Craft/Knitting Bag

This is a 2008 project I thought I will add to the blog. I have made my darkling mother in law Val a craft/knitting bag as a Christmas gift for 2008. She is a keen crafter herself and never leaves home without a project that she now can carry around in style. I have stitched it on 28 ct DMC linen and have finished it with pretty grey-green fabric inside. I have attached pretty little scissors and scissor fob and also stitched several pockets inside the bag to hold needles, charts etc. I have designed the garden of flowers and tree myself and have stitched it in a combination of silk ribbon and DMC threads. The pattern of the bag is available, should anyone be interested - email me:)My apologies:- :-( the photos is not such a good quality as she took them with her cell phone and sent them on to me. The really do not do the bag justice! I will update them soon with better ones.
