Heh heh. I made another bag from the same book Ultimate Sashiko Sourcebook by Susan Briscoe. You know what the Jacksons used to sing, "Don't stop till you get enough." or in my case, till my hand aches/cramps/gets arthritis.
This bag turned out rather ethnic looking which was not my intended effect but I was rather delighted by it. This one I'm keeping for myself.
