Here is the bag I made from the mini sampler.
I am pleased with the way it turned out.
The cross stitch is 'framed' with tan fabric, as
well as the back of the bag and the lining.
I made the handle from two separate pieces
that are tied together in a bow, and trimmed with
a few buttons and a bow from twine.
The bag will probably hang from the ladder back chair
in the living room, though it could be used for a small purse,
or a place to keep sewing supplies. I am enjoying
the springy colors on the sampler,
especially since we are having snow and
wind and cloudy skies again today in Ohio!
