It's a series of things done in twos! Yesterday I made two wool totes. I had two related-but-not-similar pieces of crewelwork from the thrift store (still in their hideous green plastic frames).
After unpicking the stitches that held the embroidery to the cardboard backing, I just trimmed the linen ovals and then joined them to the wool with bias binding.
Sister bags, I guess, for your trips to the library! Cotton velveteen handles, pansy-printed lining.
They'll go in etsy soon, or you can email me if you want them. $22 each, or $40 for the pair.
The proceeds from my last few weeks of sales are going to a young family here with four children--one birth, two adopted, and one foster. To pump up their Christmas a little :)
