Feeling knotty

Today has been spent working on my purse goal (3 this week, for those who just tuned in!). I wanted to experiment with some new shapes and decorations, so I decided my first try would be a small bag with a big ol' flower embroidered on it. I uh, also had some shows to watch, and if I embroider while I watch I don't feel like I'm wasting time being a couch potato.


That's what I've got so far, and she's not finished yet! This was my first stab (haha! stab!) at french knots.

I've had a couple questions about how I sew my packaging, so I'm putting together a small tutorial for tomorrow. Stay tuned!

Embroidery is one of my favorite things to do. My Grandma taught me when I was little. I really like yours.
