Book Review: Handmade Bags in Natural Fabrics

My son was in need of a new bag to carry his books in, so I made him the large sized shoulder bag, with a short strap, so he could hold it in his hand.


Using some IKEA fabric I had in my stash, here is the finished result:







He loves it!

Push your Needlepoint

Today we’ll finish up talking about balance and exciting needlepoint by looking at a piece I’m finishing up and talking about it. The design is from Two Sisters Needlepoint and has three small Lily-style shifts. I loved it immediately because it puts those iconic shifts in a clever small package.
