I'm still having a good time focusing on embroidery! I found this jute bag at my local Hobby Lobby and thought it would make the perfect canvas. I really like that the bag itself is lined, so I was able to hide ends between the jute outer layer and the lining without having to put a lining in the bag myself - eek!
I kept with mostly bright colors in hopes of helping to bring on spring here in the northeast. It seems to be working! Here are a few shots and close ups of the finished product.
