Embroidered vegetable storage bag

Hello there! I’m back with another embroidery venture of mine, and not to forget even hand sewn. With an active baby girl who mostly catnaps through the day I barely have time for anything other than chores, but that wouldnt stop me from getting this done. Ideally, it should have been done in a day but it took me two whole weeks to get it done. I folded a piece of fabric 25×30 cms and sewed the sides of the bag. Folded the top part to make space for the drawstring and sewed it in place. Now getting on to the embroidery since the thread count of this muslin was very less I used another backing fabric to do the wool embroidery. Then free handed the carrot pattern, I wanted the carrots to appear as a bunch when the bag is pulled close, hence spaced them accordingly. Im so proud of this idea, that I’m claiming royalty rights to anyone who wants to do this 😀

Actually I love the way it turned out, exactly the way I want it to be. My carrots have stayed fresh for over a week and I couldnt be any more happier with this pretty bag.

Crochet Earrings

Sorry about the late post, been busy preparing for diwali. It’s diwali here today and I was excited to wear my new royal blue coloured dress finally. While I was wondering about my accesories, I got super pumped on seeing the embroidery floss lying around. And started crocheting these earrings. Now, the dilemma arose should I post these under crochet or embroidery(Obviously crochet, just playing tricks with your head).

Hope these photos suffice to explain what I went through(Pressed for time). Will do a detailed post soon enough, I promise.

DSC01958So had to start over, and ended up with a not so great design, still wore it.
