My sewing bag

I decided I needed a sewing bag for when I get together with the girls on our Monday sewing days. After looking through plenty of mag's & books I decided to do the one pictured below,"Sewing Notions Bag by Rhonda Thornley"  from Patchwork & Stitching magazine Vol 14 No 1. Well my version anyway. - This is a work in progress along with many other projects.

As you can see the pictures on the bag were created by an embroidering machine. I don't have one of those so I drew them free hand,

Once I had drawn them onto my material,(sorry no picture, I forgot to take one) I coloured then with Derwent pencils and sealed with Plaid textile medium

 These are now ready to be stitched.
I am going on holiday in the next couple of days for 4-5 weeks, so will have plenty of relax time to do stitching.(maybe)
I now have plenty of stitching to do, with these 3 pic's and 6 Fireman Sam pic's so I should keep out of mischief.  I will take lots of pictures of my adventures over the next 5 weeks & I will up date my blog as soon as I return home.
So Please keep looking in to see my progress on all my projects.
Happy stitching Ladies.
