Party bags

These are some party bags we made for Emily's seventh birthday craft party that she had with her friends yesterday. The cross stitching was quite quick because it was by no means delicate! I used the full six threads in the Cosmo skein and hessian as the backing. These were sewn onto duck cloth which is a beautifully soft thicker fabric, and bright Alison Glass fabric was used to house the drawstrings. The best thing I overheard about the cross stitch from one of the girls was, 'I think I could do that'. Maybe next years party. No. Maybe the year after, I need some time to recover. Happy restful Sunday everyone!
