These Bag Ladies are a HOOT to make!
The Bag Ladies are a group of 12 lovely ladies who portray themselves as Bag Ladies. They are all unique as most Bag Ladies are. They all dress a little differently, certainly some eccentricity apparent and there accessories are eclectic at best. They come from all walks of life and their ties to family or old friends may have been lost. But, they found a place, where they were accepted for who they are and what they bring to the group. They all have one common interest in quilting. They all show up every Friday night at the local quilt shop to sit and enjoy their stitching with each other!
Each bag lady pre-printed and pre-colored on an 8 1/2" x 11" fabric and are ready to start stitching! They are printed on a light tea-dyed fabric with a paper backing. When you get your kit, you will remove the paper back and then apply the Bosal Tricot fusible to the back of your ladies. This will help stabilize your project as you stitch.
Here's Millicent right out of the package...
Bag Ladies are easily completed with basic embroidery stitches. Embellish them with buttons, beads, and charms to personalize them and use them as gifts for your friends and family. Bag Ladies can be made into small individual wall-hangings, pillows, a larger wall hanging, or even a quilt. We'll provide various setting options through the year!
