Zakka Along Week 19 :: Sweet Sugar Cookie Sack

I hope you're sitting down. I.embroidered.

I've avoided it so many times during the Zakka sew-along, and really couldn't see my way out of it this week.
And believe it or not, I found embroidery needles in my sewing kit and look! Even a hoop!
I decided to generalize, and rather than make a 'cookie' bag, I opted for 'treats'. Jen basically gave permission, as she came up with several unique twists with her little sacks.

The body of the bag is white Essex linen, with a teal Marmalade stripe for the label, and the ittsiest bit of Heirloom for the trim.
This pattern by nanaCompany is definitely sweet and satisfying.

Linking up with LRstitched and TNT.
