Time to get Nautical .................

Hi everyone we have a new challenge over at Crafty Ribbons and our theme for you this fortnight is 'Nautical'.   I loved this challenge as it made me think of summer which is just what I need with all this cold weather at the moment!  I decided to make a shopping bag for my DT creation and used some nautical fabric as well as some gorgeous sail boat ribbon which I used across the top of my bag.  I used some lovely red stripe ribbon for the mast of the boat and some blue striped ribbon for the flag at the top and finally finished off with some red and blue striped buttons and a red spotty button at the top of the mast. 

This is a close up of the boat:

I embroided some little birds and waves, this was a bit like a card I didn't know when to stop! I'm really pleased with how it turned out though. 

There is a wonderful prize for the winner of the challenge so I hope you will come and join in. 

Thanks for stopping by.
Hugs Lynsey x
