There are 2 kinds of finishes, would you agree? One type of finish is when you’ve stitched the last stitch, check for missing stitching and then take it off the bars.
Then the other finish is when it comes back from the finishers. The Meredith Collection finishers worked their magic on this! Through the finishing procedure, they sent me pictures of the leather swatches to select what I wanted. Two previous stitchers that had stitched this bag, one selected black and the other this color. So I went with this color. Every time I saw the black bag, I second guessed my choices. But I am thrilled with this color!
Last but not least, select your lining color and your monogram. And then wait!
There are 2 more stitchers at the shop working on this bag. Maybe seeing my finished bag will motivate their stitching! I do want to stitch another bag as the zen of pure basketweave is so relaxing!
Miss Meow loves their bed! It was a gift when they were little kitties from a dear friend. And yes they still both manage to squeeze themselves in here!
And Mooch is just chillin…
What a lovely bag, Vicky. I love the style. The leather color is well-suited to the colors of your needlepoint piece. Miss Meow and Mooch are looking very well and sassy.
Thanks so much from all of us!
Beautiful work! And the finishing shows it of wonderfully.
