[sewing] [embroidery] Sashiko bag

Finally finished! It took me ages to finish this bag, though the actual embroidery itself wasn’t that long to do. Had I been working on it more regularly, it would have been finished ages ago. I didn’t want to put too much pressure on myself though, otherwise what’s the point of a craft?

Doing these three panels, I discovered I prefered curvy patterns rather than lines: the process is funnier and the result suits me best. I’ll have to remember that when planning for my bedspread (you know, the one I aim to finish before 2020). So now I have another knitting bag, of an intermediate size: perfect for a few balls of yarn and a knitting magazine – exactly what I need for my baby knitting. Can you tell I love my new bag?

My preferred one is the top one!
