Garden Bag and Trapunto

Here is the "Garden Bag" which I have made for classes this week!  A great way to use up scraps (mine were Nancy Halvorsen "scraps") and offcuts of fabric!   I have used up some of my huge collection of buttons too on this project!

And in a few weeks we will be working some Trapunto embroidery - this is one of the samples!  I hope everyone has enjoyed their Easter break - back to work tomorrow!!!


  1. The bag looks lovely Fiona. You have been a busy girl.

  2. Oh, what fun you'll have enjoying going places with that beautiful bag! Is trapunto the same as candlewicking?

  3. What a beautiful bag. I love the buttons added to give it extra pizazz

  4. Beautiful, Fiona! I just love your bag! What a wonderful way to use up your scraps and buttons. so creative. Hugs from Texas!


  5. The trapunto looks great. Very expert! I've never tried it.

  6. The bag and trapunto stitching look so beautiful!

    Best wishes,
