Every once in awhile I venture into the sewing room and make one of Anita Goodesign's "Black Board Bags". My first one was disappointing, but thanks to an online friends instructions, I've lined the last two I stitched out. So much nicer. I have never been disappointed in Anita Goodesigns' embroidery projects until this one. I can't imagine not digitizing for an in the hoop lining. It really is so easy to do and finishes off these cute bag so nicely.
Here are some photos:
I used black pre quilted cotton for these.
I have some black ultra suede I'm also going to try, and some thick black felt. Now that I have the lining method figured out, it's going to be even more fun to pick out thread colors and zippers to go with the lining!

These take a while to stitch out. About an hour and a half, but the embroideries are very so cute!
