Embroidered bags

More bags using the panels made before my embroidery machine went to be repaired.  This shape has been popular.  I have had fun choosing sayings as well.
"The simplest things in life are often the things most precious." This was a pattern I bought online.
"Follow your own star".  I was particularly pleased with how this turned out, as it was my own design combining a quote I love and an image I had on a CD of embroidery designs.
"Yesterday has gone. Tomorrow may never come.  All we have is today.  Live one peaceful day at a time." A friend has this quote (or one very similar) outside her house, and it helps me to keep things in perspective.
"Cinderella. Proof that one pair of shoes really can change your life."  One to make shoe-lovers, in particular, smile.
