Sew We Quilt teamed up with Brooke Nolan and Cory Blunt to create some vintage counted cross stitch and pinny's for our bags in each of the four seasons. Guess what season I picked... YES, I picked SUMMER. First it's my favorite season. Second Brooke's design was red/white/blue. And third, I figured by the time mid January rolled around, we'd need something "summery" to remind us of fun, warm days ahead in the midst of the cold, dreary winter weather we're having.
So without further delay.... Here's my TAMMY FOR ALL SEASONS VINTAGE SUMMER BAG.
The cross stitching up close. I added some outline stitches to give it more definition against the white Aida cloth.
And my Pinny on the back. I ordered Cori's pattern, which is super cute but I had other visions for my Pinny. I thought what is more vintage and summer and red/white/blue than a bunting? So here's my bunting on my Pinny.
And the back of my Pinny to hold my needles, scissors, and the cutest little pocket to catch all my threads.
I couldn't resist a few more pictures of my Tammy bag. I had fun taking them. It looks so cute on my vintage red bicycle.
Of course I couldn't have done this without my Beam n Read light. You can read all about it here. And this hop sure couldn't be possible without the awesome cheerleader Mary at I Piece 2-Mary and our fabulous sponsors:
