This bag is for bird-lovers and/or lovers of Japanese styled embroidery. A Tawny Frogmouth is an Australian bird, sometimes called a Podargus, which hunts insects and frogs at night. It can often be seen pretending to be the top of a fence post.
The front is an interpretation of a frogmouth, stitched using the Japanese embroidery called Sashiko. The design is by Indigo Niche. It is deep yellow stitching on a black background.
The back of the bag is yellow gum blossoms with gold highlights. The lining is a Japanese design, with petals and flowers in cream and gold. There are no pockets.
The bag is made from cotton fabric and threads, with polyester padding in the bag and strap. Cold water wash is recommended.
The bag is 35 cm x 26.5 cm. The strap is 77.5 cm long.
I love Sashiko as it is basically running stitch, and the fabric is marked with the stitches showing their length. It is a great way to zone-out while making something beautiful. However, once finished I have to decide what to do with the embroidery - and it has taken a few years to decide. The result is this bag.
