....another "finished" finish!!
The design is be Homespun Elegance, I believe it is just called "Sisters." The finished size of the stitching is about 3 1/2" x 4". And I used Dani's instructions to finish it as a lined bag! I did ok....although the one visible stitching (at the top) is a bit "drunken" because the bag opening was just barely big enough to fit over the sewing platform on my machine, and it slipped a few times as I was zipping along. But once it is drawn shut, my amateur sewing skills are not so obvious. hehe And my sister is not at ALL crafty, so I know she won't mind! I'm going to fill it with potpourri, so she can put it in/on her dresser or in her closet. For the pic I just stuck a handful of fiberfill in there.
You know, I absolutely love all of you internet stitchers out there. If it weren't for the helpful hints and directions I've collected (from Jo and Dani and others), I'd NEVER have tried some of these finishing techniques. Not to mention all of the encouragement, enabling, and wonderful compliments!! You all are the best.
