Crazy Pieced Bag (Work in Progress)

Another work in progress, started at a workshop at the quilt show. Sally Holman was the tutor and we completed piecing the back of the bag. The kit contained plenty of fabric and embellishments to continue working on it at home. The scan does not show the colours at their best - the selection in the kit is a lovely combination of creamy, yellowy fabrics. Sally showed us different embroidery stitches which could be used to embellish the seams, embroidery thread is included with the kit. She also showed us how to make a "Suffolk Puff" - a fabric flower which will adorn the front flap of the bag, along with lace and beads. I'm looking forward to working on this - piecing is quite my 'thing' at the moment.
