Candlewicked Bags

These two candlewicked bags are our project for this week at Needlework!   It is always fun to explore this age old form of needlework!  Such great results can be obtained from one simple colour!

This first one is stitched on calico and is really lovely with the lace around the top to finish it off!

And this one is stitched on a printed patchwork fabric which gives a nice result!   Thanks to Sylvia for sharing her design with me!


  1. I am huge candlewicking fan. These are beautiful. Do you sell a pattern?

  2. I love candlewicking, I made my god-daughter's christening bib out of candlewicking. Lovely work, beautiful finish :)


  3. Those bags look beautiful. I've heard of candlewicking but have never tried it. Looks like something I should explore. They're very pretty.

  4. Both bags are so beautiful! I've never tried this technique, but always wanted :)

    Best wishes,
