Sling Bags -Some More :-)

Hello All,

Dussera over and now Diwali comes 🙂
And Here are some more sling bags, which I embroidered before and stitched recently
I have fallen in love with all my sling bags so I’m finding it emotional to part with them. I made these for gifting, but the effort and the thrill I got in making them, I dont feel like gifting it to others.
But obviously I cannot use them all, so there they go to my relatives and friends.
Now my wish is reduced to the hope they love and appreciate the sling bags.

Now coming back to the embroidery details.

I already blogged the gopur design here and from Preethi’s blog.

The Kutch design is usual one, but this one I did with Cretan stitch base similar to how Preethi has done her Gopur Design base.

The Cathedral window design is from my Kantha embroidery kurta but embroidered in Herringbone stitch.

The other Sikku Kolam design is stitched using Italian knot stitch which I learnt from Anitha’s blog here

This is again a simple mirror embroidery with some embellishments.

This is a Sikku Kolam design stitched with Chain stitch. I ran out of the handle fabric and so used a left over material (from a skirt).
After making, I loved the contrast.

Embroidered Sling Bags

Hi All,

I wanted to write Sling Bags Galore.. but it is only me who comes up with 1 project in 2 months and post once in a while. So just making 5 sling bags might not make it “Galore” to my crafty readers, so to protect my modesty, it is just Embroidered Sling Bags

So, as I had mentioned in my previous posts and here , this idea was germinating in my mind for more than 2 months and now 5 bags have seen the sunlight. There are few more( 8 to be precise) which are in progress.

So here they are with the hand embroidered motifs/designs.
I loved doing the embroidery. Sewing and making the lining and all were actually difficult for me. Nevertheless I learnt some tricks and tried to make them quick.

Please give your feedback on these bags.

I have attached the white stones in all bags. In some of the bags it is not seen because well.. I added them after I photographed 😀
So when the time comes, I’ll photograph them again. Else my dear readers, please turn on your imagination and put the white kundan stones wherever there is a pointed edge or a curve. In real, I have tried it on the sides of the mirror also.
So please stay tuned for more pics with stones (ofcourse)



Embroidery Sling Bag

Hi All,

Nothing much to say… See here is the embroidery sling bag I stitched on saturday. I’m planning to make more of it in different colors and more designs.

Lined it with printed cotton and added zipper.

Here is the embroidery detail. It is a mirror in the center and haphazardly drawn paisleys.

And when I said, I’ll make more of such bags, I will patiently trace the design and do the embrodiery. Wish me luck and patience too 🙂
