Embellished

I've recently been developing my embellishing skills, by completing some knitted projects that incorporated finishing steps of embroidery.

Here they are complete. The little flowers really add to the mittens, I think.


This knitted bag required over 200 French knots, over 100 cross stitches and some duplicate stitches too.



Here's the finished bag:


I really like it! I want to make another, only in green this time.
