In Learn To Embroider, One of my Yahoo stitching groups,
we are making a small bag using black felt and simple stitches. The black felt is cut into a square and then put on point. You embroider down the central diagonal and then on each side of that line of stitching you do the same thing….when the piece is covered it gets fused to another piece of felt to stiffen it, then folder and sewn in such a way that you have a kite shaped little bag. Here is the beginning of mine. I am using worsted weight knitting yarn that is variegated in colors that i especially like and to me they look pretty great against the felt. I will definitely be making more of thee, but hope to find some heavier weight felt next time.

Let me know what you think.
