Last weekend we had a birthday celebration in our Apartment. The B’day girl is 3 yr old and She is in our next apartment.
I wanted to make something Handmade for her with her name or initials in it.
First I thot I’ll make a Drawstring bag, Crayons holder and a wristlet.
I bought fabric and everything and had a detailed plan in my mind.
Inbetween I thot of a small Applique( think so) in the centre and drew a small freehand design in the cloth.
I started embroidering it ( after a very long time, I took the needle). It was very simple one.
I quickly finished it and hemmed the edges.
Then made the simple drawstring bad.I used fusing for the stiffness and used 2 fabrics.One for outside nad one for lining.
Both are of same type.It took almost 2 hrs for me to make this simple bag. I wanted it to be neat and it is for gifting so I had to keep up with the time.
Then I bought some Rose colour satin ribbon, gathered it by handstitching and then machine stitched it to the embroidery.
I finished this in the afternoon only and the b’day celebration was in the evening.So no time to make the rest of the things.
So here is the bag and its close-up.
Have a look and post ur comments.
