I entered my linen backpack in the Summer 2011 tote bag contest at Hatched in Africa. The rules were to sew a bag and decorate it with HIA machine embroidery designs and add some bling. The designs I chose were from the Jacobean Jewels collection and the pattern I used for the bag is Butterick 4147. I added swarovski crystals for my bling. My bag won 2nd place!!! I actually won $100.00 to use towards some more of their beautiful designs. I so enjoyed picking out new designs. I already have new projects dreamed up to use with them. If you love machine embroidery, HIA designs are awesome!
