Hello lovely people!

I haven't been on in a while and and I'm really sorry for this!  I made this wee bag a few months ago for our school raffle.  It was even won by someone in my class :)

I used free hand machine stitching to create the figure.  I like to draw the design lightly in pencil.  You can use tracing papers or special transfer paper too but pencil works fine for me.

I used a technique called applique for the hair.  I chose a cute spotty material and once I had stitched my design on I cut through my base fabric to expose the other material underneath.

One I had done this I added some flowers and hearts and stitched this onto a canvas bag.  You can buy this on Amazon or at Hobbycraft.

Finally I added some ribbons and a big rose corsage and that was it done!
