Muse Kindly Stopped for Me

It must have been all those drawstring bags I made in the past, this pattern just seemed to flow through my fingers!!! :) .I didn't need any pattern, and no hitches at all (gasp!!!)

Presenting my first ever Finished Object made without a pattern.

Ta... Da.... :D

Should be obvious by now, I LOVE shells and beads!!! I tried making two different patterns that I thought of, at the time.They, however, didn't meet my criteria for a bag,  like for instance,I don't like a open lacy work around the base of the bag.You know , how annoying it can be, when things stick out from the bag or when they fall out through that lacy work on the bag.

Here's a close up of the stitches and the beads. Just a simple pattern but I am extremely proud of this one,coz its my own ;)

Its not lined and does-not have a strong base lined with cardboard or anything.

You think my mom will like it? All done on my to do list for mom.YAY!!!
