The last offering for the 2016 Ladies Prim Society is another gorgeous piece by Barb and Alma of Blackbird Designs. It is a lovely Christmas Design called Tis the Season Sewing Bag and pictured below.
The kit comes complete with 36ct linen for stitching the bag, and a piece for the lining as well as the threads and ribbon for finishing. Since I cannot see well enough to stitch on 36ct, I chose a piece of hand dyed Brown 16ct AIda. This design is a little different in that the front of the bag is stitched vertically and the back of the bag is stitched horizontally. I am also stitching with two strands of floss rather than the one strand that was recommended.
Started: December 30, 2016
Finished Stitching: January 12, 2017
And the best thing about this one is I did the finishing all by myself!
