Gallery Tote (and an elephant pouch)

Sometime last year, way last year, I decided that I was going to do at least a little something about all the unstitched embroidery patterns on my hard drive and stitch some of them up and then make a bag to showcase them. I did the embroidery part fairly quickly but as usual with me, it’s the sewing up bit that takes forever but thanks to #30for30crafting, I got my finger out and I’m really pleased I did because I think this is the nicest thing I’ve made in ages!

I also, at the same time, embroidered an elephant to also go on the bag, but I decided it didn’t go to well with the other pieces, so I made that into a separate pouch today as well.

I am so happy I stitched these up finally, it’s so nice to get them out of my to do pile and as they were a substantial part of the aforementioned pile, I almost feel like I can start something else ambitious now but I’ve still got lots of WIPs going on, so maybe I should control myself!
