I really, REALLY want to make Catherine Parr up in a needlepoint bag. I didn't want to royally (sorry about the pun) mess it up, so decided to have a go on a piece of needlework I stitched over 25 years ago. It was a pillow, but the velveteen had faded so much, I ripped it apart. Given it was my first attempt at stitching up a needlepoint bag, it's not bad. But there has to be an easier way to do this than by the seat of my pants.
The inside is lined with a light pink moire and the back is a wine-colored velveteen. If anyone can direct me to a tutorial or something that can show me how to attach a cord, I'd appreciate it. Right now, it's strapless - GASP! (HA!) I may just leave it that way…..
