Finish for May.

Here are a few photos of my SKOW bag for this month.  Have been doing lots of stitchery of late so decided that I wouldn't do it for this bag. After seeing all the other lovely stitchery bags, I am a bit disappointed I didn't, but am still happy with how mine turned out. I decided it looked a bit plain so tonight made a Suffolk puff and added a couple of buttons to the front.


I added a pocket to the inside as well and didn't make the slit in the back.
Well Chooky, can you please mark me off as completed for May, now onto the Red Home pin cushion.
Bye for now.......  Noela.........
