This was the first real sewing project that I made. It’s a lined version of the Charlie bag that I scaled down by trimming the sides and bottom of the pattern. The flowers are done with ribbon, and I used instructions from the Threads website to make the stems http://www.taunton.com/threads/pages/t00235.asp
The fabric was a bad choice for ribbon embroidery, but I think it turned out okay.
