    Elizabethan Sweet Bag

    This little bag was my very first attempt at blackwork embroidery. The pattern is taken from Jane Bostocke's sampler. The bag is DMC perle cotton floss on even weave linen fabric, linen with pink fine linen.

    I entered this piece in Calontir's Queen's Prize Tourney in 2004.

    Front, with US quarter to scale.
