WIP: Embroidery for a bread bag

I know I shouldn’t mention the “C” word before Hallowe’en is over, but I’m making a start on Christmas presents. From experience, I know if I don’t start now, they’ll never be finished on time! At the moment, I’m working on a bread bag – it’s something you have in a lot of French houses, hung up in a kitchen, to store baguettes in. I loved the folk flowers embroidery on a tote bag by Nana Company (the tutorial is here on eHow), so I decided to use that as decoration:

I also embroidered “Sac √† pain” with stem stitch in green thread:

The fabric is a very light blue linen, which I’ll cut and sew onto a grey linen/cotton fabric, which has a lovely “vintage” feel. I hope to have it finished in the next week, I’ll keep you all updated!
