Tree Bark Bag With Knot Hole Coin Purse

Inspired by rugged tree bark, this bag progressed from photo to fabric to stitching to a touch of hand embroidery.

I chose a green/gray canvas fabric, stitched it to a layer of stabilizer and muslin with stitching lines resembling wood grain.

I must whine a little and tell you it was a long journey between my first glance at that tree and the final photo of the completed bag.

Inner zipper pocket in lining, three outer pockets, plus the ‘knot hole’ coin purse. More photos in my Etsy Shop. But more specifically, the Tree Bark Bag is here.
