Pocket for a bag

At the end of the week, I have received the Xmas issue of Marie-Claire Idées, a French needle craft magazine. A very good issue, by the way.
In it, their was a pattern for a hand embroidery. I have decided to give it a try, but with machine embroidery. Here is the result:

This is mainly FME, with a few standard stitches, on black commercial felt.

It will become the front pocket of a bag.

What a great idea to do FME rather than do it by hand! I like the pattern too! I don't think we get that magazine here in the states.

When I have been on holiday I always buy that magazine if it's on the bookstand at the airport. I can't read a word,but learn a lot of interesting things from the illustrations!

Gorgeous! It's so colourful, and all of the different designs look fantastic.


Das ist wunderschön geworden, die Farben leuchten richtig!
