Little Bags ITH
In the 5x7" / 13x18cm hoop you can make a whopping 9 little bags, all completely in the hoop.
There is a separate collection of 3 bags available for the 4x4" / 10x10cm hoop.
The bags are finished on a whim that you probably will want to make the whole collection. They are made without any visible seams and for some of them you will only need 5 minutes.
This a perfect embroidery project for those who love little bags.
The very small ones are great for a lipstick or tampons, the middle ones will fit some more cosmetics, money and more and in the long ones you can even put your glasses in.
Some of the bags have cross stitch embroideries like roses and flowers. If you do those with a 30 wt size garn, they will look as if they were embroidered by hand and they will gain a nostalgic look.
It is the easiest way to close the bags with a KamSnap. I love the heart shaped ones.
You can find a great collection of KamSnaps at Snaply.
For the design examples and exact sizes please look here.
You will need:
• embroidery thread size 40wt, size 30wt cotton thread for the embroideries
• embroidery stabilizer – tear or cut away
• thin bating (0,5 cm thick) or one to iron on like Vilene H630
• cotton fabrics
• Kam Snaps
