It's spring! In honor of the season, I decided the second sheep in my line of embroidered project bags and sachets would be a fresh little spring lamb. First, I began with a sketch:
After that, I experimented with colors and which kinds of stitches to use for the features. This little sweetie is the end result:
The bags and sachets are sewn with 100% linen. Each one is stitched by hand with perle cotton embroidery threads, and no two are ever exactly alike. The sachets are filled with dried lavender buds and chamomile blossoms—a lovely scent that not only makes your closet or woolens drawer smell great, but also wards off pesky moths. A small cotton loop allows you to hang it on a clothes hanger or a hook, if you like.
The drawstring bags are about 10.5 inches wide and 11.5 inches tall—just the right size for medium and small projects, like socks, hats, baby things, scarves and shawls, or mitts. They also make great reusable gift bags for your hand-knit gifts.
Today's "wrapping and packing day"—I'll be heading to the post office later with this week's shipment.
You can find the new spring lamb—as well as my first stitched sheep, a merino—in my Etsy shop.
Thank you very much for reading!
