April Pinterest Challenge 15a/25 Motif challenge

Another beautiful day her in Somerset,  and its really warm too, clear blue sky,  
As you know Suzanne and I are doing this challenge between us of finding things on Pinterest and trying out the ideas.
Well here is my April one,   I saw this bag on pinterest and I knew the pattern its actually a pattern from Tatting Patterns by Mary Knoior that has been used,   I started the bottom with a ring and then worked it round until I had the size of the bag.  It seem to take ages to reach the top of the bag and it worked out well, so well I am now making another couple.  I will post them with how I did the bags on another day.
Here is the bag closed.  I used Lizbeth thread no 20 in white and an organza bag for the inside.

Hope you like it
If you would like to see Suzanne's item on her blog here is the link  she has done the most gorgeous card.
I am sorry I have not been around all the blogs recently but some days the pain is just too much so please excuse me if I did not leave you a comment I promise that I will try and catch up with the blogs.
Until we meet again take care



  1. Oh Margaret this is beautiful and I will make lots of these love the ring idea at the bottom and the pink is wonderful to see! I love netting and your tatting is perfect!
    Hugs from Carollyn!

  2. Really cute little bag. Great idea to embellish an organza bag.

  3. It's beautiful! I don't understNd how you're closing though. Is it sewn to the organza bag or does the ribbon pass through the mignonette?

  4. Oh wow Margaret this is another stunning project! You are so clever. This bag is so pretty and could be used for some treasured items. I love it!! Thanks for playing along with me in the pinterest challenge, can't believe we are starting May already. Looking forward to seeing what you make next.
    Hugs suzanne xx
