I actually added this a few days ago and completely forgot to blog about it! My mind has been on over drive lately with all things ribbon, daydreaming of new things to make and new variations. So much so that I kind of forgot to blog about a project completed!
I have been getting inquiries about monogrammed items which was good prompting to finish up a couple of half done samples that happened to feature monograms. The problem with offering mainly custom items is that you need samples of everything. I love making the samples, but they often take a back seat in getting finished when I have actual orders to make and send off. That is why it took a really long time for this poor bag to actually get finished. No complaints though, I love getting orders that make samples go unfinished!
This bag, like my others is available on a variety of fabrics and is fully customizable as far as choice of letter and colors of flowers.
I really love the ribbon used on this sample, it is all hand dyed silk. I don't personally dye my ribbons, I think some day I might like to learn to do that, but for now I will just continue to support a couple of really amazing ladies who make what I think is the best hand dyed ribbon there is.
It is probably a little hard to tell, but in addition to the tiny petite seed beads I normally bead with, I also added in 3mm Swarovski Crystal Bicones. I absolutley love Swarovski Crystals and use them in just about everything I do. I am thrilled to have found then in such a small size so that I can now include them in my embroidery.
You can find this bag in my shop on this site or on Etsy.
