This is where I write a whole post about tote bags and don’t show you a decent photo of the actual bags, as usual by the time I’ve made something, the light is gone (and me, patience? nope).
Anyway, this post is really about embroidery patterns by the illustrator Tamar Yanai.
I bet you can guess which bag is for Girl Lacer and which one is for Boy Lacer?
As for the Tamar Yanai patterns, they were a pleasure to work from, however, they are very detailed patterns and some of the more intricate detail was more difficult to transfer to the fabric / stitch, so I had to miss some of the detail out and even then I wouldn’t particularly recommend these patterns for beginners, however for everyone else I would recommend them whole heartedly, as I love the little details such as the border and the use of running stitch on the clothing – just be prepared to go down to one strand of floss to achieve the detail!
PS I couldn’t resist making me a bag to, I used this embroidery I did last month.
*I do own one of the White Stuff bags to, before you go accusing me of copying a charity bag.
