A Time To Stitch Eight - What's Your Bag? Sign Up



Hi Y'all,

Well Christine and I have made a decision on the theme for ATTS 8. What's Your Bag? Christine's idea was to do an amulet bag, Which I thought was a great idea, but I thought why stop at an amulet bag. How about any type of bag as long as it has stitched beads.  It could be done totally in beads or trimmed in a beaded fringe. You could do a bead crochet bag, or bead embroidery ext...  The possibilities are only limited by your imagination.

I fell in love with the bag that Paula did for ATTS 7.  Paula purchased the kit for the bag from Beads East, which they have many kits and patterns for bags and all kinds of other beading projects.

Other places to get inspiration are PinterestYou Tube, and magazines just to name a few places.

So if you are interested in playing along for another round of A Time To Stitch please sign up either here on my blog or on Christine's blog.  Sign ups are from June 19th through the 27th (I know the blog badge says the 20th, but we are giving y'all an extra day.). You will have five months to work on your project or projects, for those that are truly ambitious.


Happy beading Y'all
Therese

  10. Eeeyikes I almost missed it!! Thanks for the heads-up, Therese! I am SO in! We must have been having a mind-meld, because this will completely fit in with the bead embroidery piece that has been sitting in my head since I did the last one, and for which I have been collecting "goodies". :-) Off to look at idea links....
