So ... here's the project I was working on the other night ... osnaburg and red velvet, the perfect couple, rustic meets royalty!
After posting the photos of the last tote I made, I received a message from Jenny reminding me that her birthday is right around the corner and hinted that a tote would be a nice gift to receive. What she didn't know, but will know now, is that I was already working on her birthday gift. This tote is soooooo her!
After rubber stamping flowers on the osnaburg, I stitched the red velvet circles down with perle cotton and then added a few french knots in off white.
Next I free motion stitched around the flowers.
Then hand basted the red velvet scallop to the top of the tote to keep it in place, and machine stitched, using a zig-zag stitch ... then a little free motion stitching ...
and a little stamped Art Saves panel, stitched to the front and jute strapping to finish it off!
Here's the back ... not so fancy, but sweet all the same!
Happy early birthday Jenny!
