Project Information

Art Deco Bag on Freestyle Embroidery

This Bag has had an airing at various events and always attracts comments. It is sturdy and robust, yet is still soft to handle. It originally featured in Classic Stitches magazine and Chief Editor, Bea Neilson, kindly let me re-issue it as a project for Stitch Arena. 

By working the given instructions with the various layers of fabric and stiffening, this creates a lovely bag which keeps its shape.

You could adapt these instructions to suit any shape of Bag or Handle.
