The Cup Bag - pretty and practical

My Sweet Treat Cup Bag is in the latest Australian Country Threads magazine which arrived this week.

As usual, it incorporates two of my favourites - applique and embroidery.  Here are some more of the appliques:

You can tell how much fun I had designing this!  I love making things that are pretty and practical!

I have put the pattern on the website for anyone who does not have access to our Australian magazines.  It's available for just $5 AUD if you wish to buy it.

Happy stitching.
