in the bag



I’ve finally discovered the the perfect gift for “the person who has everything.” No- it’s not homemade granola. It’s a tote! The person who has everything undoubtedly needs something to carry all that “everything” in, so why shouldn’t it be carried in style?

This realization came on the heels of another discovery- my new favorite loose weave linen. It has just the right amount of structure and is instantly made elegant when lined with high-quality muslin.

Even better, the linen is the ideal blank canvas for free-form cross stich. Using sashiko thread and stitch patterns from Mariska Karasz’s Adventure’s in Stitches, I loosely traced seam patterns from some of my favorite Gee’s Bend quilts.
