...The finished prim bag.....and a treat~~

A blog post two days in a row....I MUST have a little something to show you...

Often we scratch our heads pondering that perfect finish for our stitched pieces...
This one was a no-brainer for me...Ever since I saw this freebie,as shown on yesterdays post,..(here)..
I felt like I needed to construct it into a little bag pieced together with calicos...
to store things in the craft room...
 another bag sitting around filled with important items...

DMC threads and coffee stained 32 ct linen

..or perhaps to hang on a knob and just be decorative...


 perhaps to tuck among other goodies...all sharing similar primness....
I really liked stitching and sewing us this freebie by Notforgotten Farms...
I decided to take my dark muslin and add a decorative vine stitch before attaching around the top of the bag....

I hope you have enjoyed spending the last 2 days with me during this stitch and finish...!

***********

I  felt like a little *treat* the other day when I saw Myra post her latest creation..Man, oh man,  this baby is PERFECT~~~ I received my order in the mail today....
Myra's stitching/sewing case is just perfect to slip down in my large project pouch...
And, look at the Blueberry Crumbcake Moda fabric!
The verse is just perfect for me as an educator....and my love for textiles...
...the inside is perfect for needles, scissors, pins and nicely folded linen pieces...
Myra is a seamstress beyond all seamstresses...her work is perfection....

...down to the very last detail.....
Thanks Myra!

The afternoon storms have passed...the parched leaves are trying to smile from their drink from mother nature...We need daily summer showers at this point...

Here's hoping that wherever you are, you are safe and satisfied .....

Hugs to you all~~~~

Faye
