Herb Garden Bag

The purple dye (top end of the picture) didn't take to the hessian very well but eager to get on (and don't chive flowers turn this colour when they are past their best?), I proceeded with the stitching. Still being disappointed with the dyeing, it didn't get framed as intended but has lain around since summer of last year. Now being on a mission to complete some of the "unfinished" pieces, I thought about making it into a little bag .................

Selecting the fabric to place behind the stitching was quite a challenge. Nearing the end of a whole afternoon searching through and trialling different fabrics I found one that didn't enhance the bit of murky (purple) hessian - polka-dot lime cotton!
