Simple Pleasures

I've not done any sewing for myself lately, but am doing some fun wedding sewing.  Below is Lazy Girl Designs (Noriko Bag) made up in embellished ivory silk for Sheryl.


and below is the bag to hold the glass to be broken at the end of the wedding ceremony.  The embroidery didn't photograph as well as I would have liked. 





And, I did promise to post my finished knitting bag!

  1. That is a very pretty bride's bag. I made that Noriko bag too, into a beaded evening bag. Love your knitting bag also.

  3. Your embroidery work is just stunning!! Those are pieces to be treasured... thank you so much for your comment, and I hope you enjoy that Japanese pattern book. The patterns are very easy, and the finished pieces are unusual and have a lovely drape to them.
