Decorated Hessian Bags..........

 I have seen so many different ideas for decorating the hessian bags from Woolworths.  Here are a couple of ideas I have come up with using some of those doilies that we have in our cupboards. I made the Rose on my Embroidery Machine and the design is from Embroidery Garden.  The design uses the single petals that are bought in packets of a couple of hundred, and then you just lay them out in a circle and sew around on the bottom edge of the petals, starting from the outside working towards the centre. Covering the petals with some sovly helps with the stitching and stops the petals getting caught up.  I stiffened the doily and then stitched it on the bag around the edge and then hot glued the rose on. I also used some old costume jewellery that I had for the centre of the rose.
