By some luck it looks as though I have a bit of a St. Patrick’s Day present for you all! I’m not usually a big St. Patrick’s Day partier, but I love Irish and Celtic culture (I definitely have some Irish blood in me), and this project idea happened at a good time! I found a nice match between some seafoam-colored faux suede that I had from a previous bag that I made, some teal-colored linen from a place mat I made some time ago, and lastly some gray suede lacing that I had leftover from another bag project. The whole color combination isn’t exactly emerald-isle, but it definitely reminded me of the ocean, and the greenish tint to it gave a vague feeling of Irish fishermen, which I loved.
I’m a big fan of Celtic knots and I’m trying my darndest to get better at drawing them. That’s why I have a rather simple one going for the motif here, but I’m going to keep pushing myself! In the meantime, the simple nature of the knot makes it much easier to appliqué 😀 Aside from that, though, it’s just a simple drawstring bag. I just love the whole look put together though ^-^

I love this project! The Celtic knot looks awesome and elegant, not simple at all, and the colors complement each other very well.
Aww, thank you! I’m definitely always impressed by those artists that do super intricate Celtic knots. I just hope to be that good eventually ^w^!
