I will quilt it like I did my ‘Field of Flowers‘ and put in a zip. It is slightly bigger than ‘The Field of Flowers’ bag because that one is a bit over-full with my Hansel knitting project.

I made myself a new project bag – for my Hansel shawl.
The embroidery is from Urban Threads. I made embroideries for the front and back, then quilted each piece and then made a lined zipper bag.
I might have made it slightly too small – you can see it’s packed, but if it doesn’t work for this project it will work for other projects (maybe a cross stitch project)
And then I came across this one at Australian Needle Arts
I think it’s the same – just a reprint (this one was published in 2003).
I have long had an interest in textiles and I find samplers particularly fascinating. I wish there was more information on the girls who stitched the samplers – where they lived, their economic situation, did they get married, did they recent making a sampler?
These girls were so young – Mary Ann Body (it’s her sampler on the cover) was only 9!
I particularly like this one – dated 1792 where a word is clearly inserted.
There is a great article here on these samplers.
