Newest Embroidered Bag

The Front: I am also making the face beads I'm using now on my bags.
I like being able to say, in truth, that this is really a one-of-a-kind, totally hand made bag!



This is the latest of my bags. I have been doing quite a bit of embroidery lately and I think that it really complements the wool. I also recently took heart in hand & opened an Etsy shop (ZQuilts, what else?!). This is one of the first items I added, along with two large bags and two small knit yarn holders or gift bags. I am not expecting too much. I have heard mixed reviews on Etsy sales, plus with the economy being what it is I am thinking that sales of hand made items might not be too brisk right now - but you never know and I am hopeful. Nothing ventured, nothing gained and all that. One way or the other it is a good experience for me, and it may help me over come my fear of getting myself "out there in the 'selling world' ! Have a look !
