My handmade sacks

I'd like to show my last handmade things. Hre they are - my sacks for my stash.

this is the first and the most simply sack. It's decorated with five kinds of hemstitch.


Thi is the second and little bit more difficult. This type of embroidery is called "olonetskoe shitye". Outlines of inner picture are stitched with chain-stitch. The area around is changed into a grid by rows of the simpliest hemstitch.
