I have been working on these for a few weeks; shouldn't have taken that long really but I have been knitting in between. i finished the second panel this afternoon:

We got a bolt of fabric at my work not so long ago that has a number of printed panels on it; i think twelve pictures to a panel.  They are all vintage type ones of children playing at something or another.  So we decided to sew along the printed lines and then they will be made up into a library bag.   You can still see the lines that go around the border, they will be covered with piping (at least that is my plan). i do love piping, it is quick, easy and gives anything such a lift.
So now all i have to do is find a nice red fabric that will match. We had a bit of a quick look at work the other day and couldn't find a red that looked nice.  Like everything, not all reds are the same! I am sure we will find something that looks good. We certainly have enough fabric at work so we should come up with something. Maybe a different colour, who knows. I will have a look on thursday when I am at work next and then hopefully it will be done over the weekend.


  1. I rather like those stitcheries, very cute. I havent done any embroidery in so long but I think it is because my eyesight isnt as good as it used to be!

  2. I love these. I'm a redwork fan. These look so alive. Library bags are a great idea.

  3. These little stitcheries are so so cute Karyn. What a great idea!! I am sure there is a perfect fabric sitting somewhere on the shelf, and library bags are always useful. I hope you are feeling much better, not to mention the patient with the cold.
