I started cross stitching a design onto this Hobbycraft tote bag a couple of years ago but gave up as I chose a design that was far too complicated. I thought that a simpler hand embroidered design would not only look great but be much easier to stitch up. It took me a lot of scrolling through Instagram, blogs and etsy and looking through existing patterns I already had before I settled on a design. I finally went with this fly agaric funghi my friend drew for me. I stitched the outline in black and was going to use a red fabric pen to colour in the cap but decided against it in case it doesn’t look right.
