JUTE BAG WITH EMBROIDERY AND FELT
This is my second jute bag from Muji to embroider—this is the B5 size for $2.90.
I drew a this in Adobe Illustrator to use as a template.
1
Cut out each of the pieces from felt.
2
Decide where and how your felt should lay and pin it to your bag.
3
I used a backstitch and just two strands of embroidery floss to attach the body.
4
Keep going, stitching all the way around the form.
Don’t stop here. It’s a bit creepy.
Pin your other pieces on. I chose to backstitch white stripes to affix the bathing suit.
5
Just keep stitching...
I used a lazy daisy stitch to make pink flowers on the swimming cap.
6
With that done, I planned out the spacing of the words before writing it with a water soluble pen.
7
I used a chain stitch to make the words stand out.
8
Keep going!
If you run out of the color you chose part way through and have to go get more, you’re just like me.
Ready for the last days of summer!!
