My Mother loved the little Valentine bag here with the pin cushions so much that I decided to make it all again, but in her favourite colours of creams, coffee and gold. It is amazing how different it looks in a softer colour palette. I made the little bag just a bit larger than the last one, I embroidered the design free hand onto the front and made the little pillows and the bottlecap pincushion to go inside.
I have also finished my first attempt at redwork, this pattern was a freebie from here ( Needlecrafter website ) there are so many lovely emroidery designs to down load and trace for redwork or any embroidery project. I am unsure how I am going to finish this, I may make it into a quilted wall hanging but I need to buy some red fabric to complement the design.
