“Wash Day”

Hooray for the 6th of 6 little snail critters for the outside of the Japanese Knot Bag!

The little “Wash Day” snail is overlooking the yellow snail as it hangs to dry. All stitched with: backstitch, split backstitch, stem stitch, french knot, detached chain stitch, straight stitch, seed stitch, and satin stitch. The water droplets are stitched with 1 strand of Kreinik filament for sparkle.

This snail will have a little “bling”. A few Mill Hill Crystal Treasures flowers will become the flowers there in the background of the grass.

Here are the Treasures placed above the stitched flowers. Not a bad match for the color scheme!

And, Voila! “Wash Day” with the bright pink border that will frame it when on the purse body.

Now…the construction of the purse body. I’m off to sew all 6 portraits to the purse shell!

Your life needs fun. Go ahead, have some fun!

    O.K., I have to admit, bling does it for me. Even on a stitching project. Very cute. Can’t wait to see this project completed.
