Last year’s holiday gifts for my co-workers and friends were linen sachets personalized with Paintwork monograms. I love linen sachets! This time I worked from an already assembled version and PaintWork seemed to be the perfect solution to add the special touch to them.
The primitive shape and the wonderful texture of a bark gathering basket were the inspiration for this elaborately embellished bag. Experiment with stitches, use double threads, mix pinks and greens – pull out your stash and play!
It’s easy to make a rose from zipper tapes using a needle and thread. It’s even easier when you use your sewing machine!
