Happiness is cross stitching blog

My little red bag

Hi everyone, I have made a copy of the Valentine giveaway for myself and decided to make this little bag to store my Valentine smalls in, the inspiration for this bag came from Martha Stewart’s website here I did alter the design and finish but at least you can see the basic tutorial.
There is still time to enter my Valentine giveaway here open until 19 February.
Giveaway now closed
Happy stitching, until next time!
Best Wishes and Happy Stitching.

    Lynn, your pretty bag is straight out of Little Red Riding Hood. I can just see her hurrying through the woods swinging her little bag with some provisions for grandmother and the little sewing kit tucked into the top in case she needs to mend her grannie's nightie :>) I'm so glad you were able to make a little set for yourself and the bag is a beautiful way of storing these little treasures.
    Really looking forward to the draw :>)
    Warm wishes Angela

    I love this bag and the goodies inside. Your stitching is so perfect.
    I'm about to try a bottle top pin cushion for myself.

    Lynn…Gasp…your little heart tote is 2die4! You are so incredibly talented my friend.

    About the Tutorial. I must tell you I do NOT know how to do the upload. My hubbs did it for me. I know I had to upload the document to my host and then typed that path into the link spot. When he gets home from work this evening I'll ask him and write back. OK?

    Love to you~
