This bag is BIG and wonderful! I think it will be great when going shopping or taking classes. It goes over your head, so your hands are free. The pattern is by Pink Chalk Studio. I made it to try using some new techniques and feet on my Bernina!
As you can see, the big yellow flower has been outlined with cording. I used the Free Motion Couching #43 foot on my Bernina. Really fun to do!
The Sashiko was also interesting to do. I used a topstitch needle with Cordonnet thread, which is heavy and thick that shows up very nicely. And having the Cordonnet foot #11 also helped feed the thread evenly. If you can't or won't do the very impressive regular hand sewn Sashiko, you must try this! It's a nice look.
