Fleur Romantique

The April edition of Creative Embroidery and Cross Stitch featured my latest Crazy Patchwork project on the front cover.
I had great enjoyment stitching this bag and especially working the hand dyed silk velvet into dimensional flowers. The jewel colours in the velvet set the tone for the shades used in the silk embroidery threads and ruched ribbon.
Tucked into the ribbon folds are blue picot edged ribbon flowers and tiny glass hearts.
Sprigs of Silk Chenille roses and leaves add an interesting texture to the background.
The kits are available with instructions or without if you have the pattern in the magazine. The unusual bag handle with chain is included in either kit or you can buy a bag handle only in your choice of style.
