Blog o' Bags

For our first project of our second semester in textiles this year we had a project in which we had to create a series of bags. It was pretty open to anything but you had to have three. So I desided to make bags out of embroidery hoops. The hoops would make the sides of the bags and then I was able to embroider on the the outside for the decorative component. The lovely Sister Valentine found me some sweet embroidery hoops from our favorite second hand stores.I then decided to use different sayings from different types of media such as my favorite television show, one of my favorite songs, and one of my favorite movies. I am also an old lady at heart and what else is better then embroidery by an old lady with bags that make a story with good quotes so my story to go along with the bags was. "Now all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy, so go out and take a walk on the wild side but don't you spread for roses." Says Old Lady Dee (Insert other name here if you are in on that joke if not then you are missing out but do not need to know) So here are my bags!
