Hand Embroidery- Tote Bag Video Tutorial

Hand Embroidered Tote Bag TutorialVideo #1 of 3 by crafty gemini

Hi all! I’m back with another installment in my hand embroidery video tutorial series. This time I wanted to use some of the stitches we’ve already learned to embellish a cute tote bag. The bag is fully lined and features some fun denim fabric and an embroidery design from the Stitched Style book by my friend, Amy Barickman of Indygo Junction.  It’s a great little resource guide with a variety of hand embroidery designs and 20 cute projects.
