February - Done

Hi SAL friends
Here is my "gorgeous" Bag. I really enjoy making this one. My embroiderie is not exactly the proposed one....  I forgot the little "archs" around. The back fabric and linen is not the same, but I think it´s not bad.    I´m waiting for a warmer weekend to go for a walk and use it. Tell me what you think about.

Your bag turned out so pretty! Well done on your finish!

Annie said...

Looks wonderful - well done. My stitchery doesn't have the little arches either...they were 'deliberately' forgotton on mine....and I'm still only half way through.

Ana Maria said...

Well... I forgot that same way.... deliberately! But I matched the fabric for the inside pockets!lol

Very pretty - I quite like it without the extra arches - but they are done now on mine so they can stay.

Well done. I don't think I would have noticed the arches missing if you didn't say anything :) hugs
