Lavender Bags

Something else for the Sales Table at the exhibition--some Lavender bags.
I have made seven of these and I did the embroidery on them when we went to Melbourne in June this year then I finished them off yesterday.
The embroidery is done in either Silk ribbon or Perle cotton and the cords were made on the machine bobbin in Perle thread as well.
I had to leave the filling of them with the Lavender until Stephen was out of the house because he is allergic to it and when they are done I have to put them in a plastic container and store them in the garage until next week--"or else"--------------------



I also made four smaller pillow ones from Silk fabric with Silk ribbon embroidery on them so now I am off to finish covering some diaries (for 2012) that I have started----busy busy.

My goodness Doreen, you must have a production line going! The lavender bags are so pretty and I'm very glad I'm not allergic to it as I love the scent - poor Stephen.

I'd get on well with Stephen then as I'm allergic to Lavender too - and cats!
These are very pretty, should sell really well. I envy people that can do lovely hand embroidery like this, I'm all fingers and thumbs.
If all the other members are putting as much effort into this sales table as you are then it really is going to be fantastic. :)

I remember seeing those when you were down here. They've turned out beautifully. I can't imagine being allergic to lavender; it is so beneficial when used in aromatherapy to make people calm and relaxed!

I'm afraid I'm with Stephen on the allergy thing - lavender makes me sneeze (a lot). Too bad because I love it. Your bags are lovely.
