A few days ago Annette left a comment that my stitches reminded her of the samplers she did in her school days. That made me think about an embroidery bag I made at primary school when I was about 8 years old. We all had to use the same patterns on the edges and the back and we had to make our own cross stitch design on the front. I think the embroidery is done in perle 5. The edge has a pink running stitch and blue and green cross stitches. Our teacher stitched the lining in the bag on her sewing machine.I used the bag at school for the project I was working on. That’s why we had to embroider our name on it. I shortened my name when I left primary school.
