The lining of the bag is quilted in a simple pattern to give the bag a better shape. A simple label inside the bag with a stamped hedgehog and mushroom, a tiny tag and some running stitches. Very simple but fun to work on. I added a pocket inside the bag as well.
Three fabric covered buttons in red and green, running stitching on the flap, around the top of the bag and around the applique. Small touches are always the most important part of any project. Right?
I am quite pleased with the result of my experiment. Free motion machine stitching is definitely the way to go if you are short on time or prefer a more "sketch-like" look of your embroidery. I better get back to my sewing machine while it's not that hot today, my head is full of ideas but unfortunately I have only two hands to work with. Hope you are having a great week! Larisa xox
