Sheepy Work

Recently, I spent some time drawing sheep ...


and stitching sheep ...



I didn't want to create a "generic sheep," but instead stitch particular breeds. So far, I'm pretty happy with my merino, and with the project bag prototype I sewed today ...


It's 100% linen, my favorite fabric. On the inside, there are no raw edges—just nice, neat French seams.



I hope to offer these bags in my Etsy shop soon, as well as lavender sachets (perfect for keeping moths away from your stash and woolens). I'll let you know when they're available.

Meanwhile, I continue to work on the daily embroidery piece I began New Year's Day. Today is Day 25. At this point I can see there will be many more days to go before it's done ...



Thanks for stopping by. I hope you've had a beautiful weekend!

Your sheep drawings & embroidery are totally adorable, Bonnie, and your sewing is perfect. I love French seams ! (in French, we call them English seams LOL)

Thanks, Dixie and Sonia! I enjoyed making this bag so much. The whole process is satisfying, from start to finish.
