Another free embroidery pattern! (with birdies again)

I made some doodles while I was going to my friend Kim’s… And I thought they would make nice embroidery designs!

I made a new 241 tote (find the pattern here!) and made one of my doodle come to life 🙂

I love the way it looks on dark fabric!!

And thanks to Kristyne over at pretty by hand, I can now embroider easily on dark fabrics with the nice trick she shared! yep, you just transfert your design onto tissu paper! How neat and easy!

the bag is made from pants, curtains, shirt and fabric remnants one of my friend gave me. It’s interlined with bed sheet and interfacing. I used 2 reclaimed zippers and part of a earring as zipper pull on the front of the bag. The strap is adjustable and it features a wooden curtain ring 🙂 You can find the listing for the bag here.
