Exchange received and some pimping

Wendy Jo finally received her birthday exchange I've sent her! Her birthday was January 12th, but the mailcompany took its time to deliver my package. This is what I've made Wendy Jo:


Design: The Seasons - Bent Creek
Fabric: 28 ct. Graziano linen
Floss: DMC
Finish: wall hanging

I've made a wall hanging of the stitched piece, but Wendy Jo can easily make it into a cushion either! Here's the complete exchange I've sent:

I wanted a new handbag, because I thought my current one was boring... But it was perfectly fine and I liked the size of it. So I decided to "pimp" it!

First I dyed it black (it was grey/brown). After that I dived into my buttons, ribbons and other stuff, and sewed, glewed and ironed it on my bag. I'm really happy with the result!

Hugs, Simone

Your gifts for WendyJo are really very nice - wonderful stitching. And your bag - that is a great project. With all the decorations, it can look completely new.

Groetjes,

Your bag is looking great, you've really managed to transform it into a new bag. Lovely birthday exchange for Wendy Jo. Hope you have a lovely evening.

What a nice exchange piece you stitched for Wendy Jo. I stitched this BC design too a couple of years ago but it still lies unfinished in my drawer because I haven't been sure what to do with it. Now I have an idea ...
Your bag looks so lovely now.
