Embroidered Strawbery Shortcake

Yep, as I told you before I am in love with embroidery...This time I've done Strawberry Shortcake embroidery. The idea I got from this blog, I was searching for strawberry as the keyword and found that blog.  It's so interesting, she made an apron with that character.  But, since I've smurfed several aprons before, I was thinking to use the embroidery into something else.  A tote bag would be great, since I have two nieces there who will love to carry it around :)

I made two Strawberry Shortcake embroideries one is the old version of the character another one is the makeover version.  This time, I just want to share the makeover version, since I haven't finished sewing the bag of the old version one :)


I really love the experience during the embroidery process.  A fellow crafter suggested to use a binding with the same fabric as the back side of the bag (pink polka dots) to frame the embroidery, check her tutorial of how to do it nicely.  Using that method now the embroidery part can be used as a pocket.  Oh yeah, this time I quilted the bag ;) it's another achievement for me heheheh...


See you at my next smurfing project ;)

    1. Hi thank you Janaki for stopping by...I didn't use quilt batting and so far nobody can find a quilt batting yet in Mumbai :( ... I used sponge and flannel fabric (like those for baby's napkin) to substitute the batting. Btw, if you love to do quilting why don't you join India Modern Quilt Guild on Facebook and Desi Quilters on Facebook as well, you can check the blogs as well. Or visit their blog for the info, http://desi-quilters.blogspot.in and http://indiamqg.blogspot.com :)
