Lizzie's bag

My dear sister Lizzie likes the bag I've done for the design competition so much that she asked if she can have it. So she has it - I'm sure she has more stuff I've made in her home than I have in mine! I finished it last night, including lining it with some fabric I bought a while ago to line Emma Gorodok's bag with last term.


Observant readers might note that the hat which has previously appeared on the bottom left corner of the bag has wandered off. Indeed, I was not happy with how the first embroidery design looked - it was altogether too 'busy', so I went for a simpler scheme with just two elements that closely relate to The Swap - a ball of yarn with needles, and an owl carrying what I hope all will realise is a sock kit package.


This afternoon I took some pictures of the bag, including several with it modelled by its new owner, Mrs Lizzie Wychwood. Then Mr. Wychwood took photos of me and Lizzie together wearing our HSKS vests for your enjoyment. Lizzie is in pink and I'm in blue.

I have never tried to knot words into something I would felt. Did you have to make any changes to make the letters so perfect??
