Thinga-ma Bag

Hello Friends,

I have an embroidery feature on my machine that is sorely under utilized; mainly because I have not played with it enough to feel comfortable with the whole process--especially the downloading patterns part.  Well, the local Husqvarna dealer has free machine classes.  They pretty much take you by the hand and walk you through any aspect of learning your machine.  Once a month they have an "embroidery Club" session.  You purchase a  kit that includes the software and printed instructions for that month's project and bring any fabric, interfacing etc. needed to make the project.
The latest project was a pyramid shaped zippy bag with embroidery on all 4 sides of the bag.
The same embroidery pattern is on the 3 sides and the bottom.

There was supposed to be a ribbon tab at the top of the bag but silly me forgot it.

I lined it with a coordinating yellow fabric.

Not quite sure what I will use it for.  Maybe a project bag for stitchery or knitting.

I may not make every month's embroidery club session but each one I do attend will make me feel a bit more confident about using my embroidery feature.


  1. So much cuter in person. At first I thought the design was printed on the fabric and you fussy cut it. Now you'll be thinking up new projects to use your new embroidery skills! Maybe some frogs next?

  2. What a cute little bag! I love the shape. How fun to have embroidery stitches to play with on your machine!


  3. Rumi i love it, its so cute and what a great way to learn something, i like the fact that you bring your own supplies and fabric.

  4. This is the cutest bag ever. The shape is great. It reminds me of the little pyramids of condensed milk I used to snack on as a child! I love the embroidery. That says embroidery pouch to me.

  5. An embroidery machine would be lots of fun. Looks like the classes are really inspiring - such a sweet purse.
