Embroidered Bags Spotlight: French Knot Sheep

Sewing, Updates

I have sewn my own little flock of charming French-Knot sheep. The French Knot is a fun stitch, and the resulting sheep have a touchable, raised texture that conveys a big, puffy sheep. These embroidered sheep grace natural linen envelope bags lined with brown calico, as linen is one of my favorite fibers and calico’s homespun charm lends itself perfectly to the heritage art of embroidery. The snaps are new-old-stock; the old stuff was made so much sturdier than what we have today.

You can get an embroidered bag of your own here (check out my jewelry and hair pins, too!), or you can enjoy viewing the rest of my portfolio here.
