As you already know about our "Pinkeep Exchange" from the last post.
During the time when I was stitching Su's pinkeep, I also was making tote bags for my friends.
Unexpectedly some friends' birthday were in the end of June and August, so first off I made their bags for the gift!
Actually I'm not good at sewing machine at the moment (will try to practice more!), but I really wanted to make something by myself for my dear friends!
Su is one of them, I really appreciate her kindness, she tells me lots of things, amuse me always by her wonderful works, she teaches me English, etc.. I really like her tolerance for me or everything!
This time the fabrics are the same with Domy's bag, but I stitched her Initial with moss-green thread (forgot the # of DMC... ), and added white rose button on it!
I imagined a lot about Su, and also added the side lace which is made elegance for the finished bag, I think!
There are also laces on the both sides of bag, and this time I used dark brown handle for Su's bag.
Here are fabrics I used for the bag, I also have made my own bag though, I like this Su's bag the most!
She told me that she will hang it on the cupboard, it made me feel relief.
Because, I think it's the 2nd time for me to sew bags, anyway, it just fits the cross stitch magazines, so can use to organize them, but actually I didn't want her to put something heavy in the bag, because I thought it might be broken, LOL
So, Su your idea is really good choice! LOL
Please leave it as it is now in the bedroom!!
