Art Deco Bag

Some time ago, you may remember, I did this long stitch Macintosh panel.  As I am trying to think of ways to use completed stitching to make things, this became a pocket on a bag.

I picked a fat quarter bundle that were of the same colour family, with extra for the lining.  I bordered and backed the stitching with the pink and it was ready to be  the pocket.

As this is likely to be going to DS2's Spanish teacher, he helped to chose the colours  for the blocks.  He decided on three which I cut into 2 1/2" squares.  I stitched them together, seven blocks to the row, and seven rows.  Put it altogether and this is what we got

Perfect use for that piece. Love all the colors and I'm sure the teacher will be very excited to receive this.

I think it turned out great! Using the piece as the pocket was a perfect idea. I know the teacher will love it forever!

Perfect fabric choices to complement the stitched piece. Wonderful!!!
