Kutch bag - Ta da

I am so happy today to show you a bag which I have made from the scratch.  I have started this project out of the curiosity of embroidering this kutch work motif.   Also the inspiration for this bag came from one of the embroidery bags which I have purchased in kodaikanal.  I have followed a youtube tutorial of smarmyclothes for the making of this bag.  Very clear video.  The best part is attaching the zipper and I found it very easy and got a confident to add zipper to any project.  Now over to the bag.

Front part of the bag

Back part of the bag with zipper.

I have quilted both the front and back pieces and added golden color glass beads. Added this foam while quilting. Happy with the outcome.

The bag has room for carrying a purse cellphone and a water bottle for weekend shopping or it can hold bible and hymn book while going to church.  Planning to do one more with silk cloth for sale in church during september.  

Hope all of u like it.  Waiting for your suggestions and comments. 

Also I am ready for the Ta da moment for the granny stripe blanket and a kasuti embroidered kurti.   Will come back soon another finish. Bye.


  1. Shami, you have made a beautiful bag, where the embroidery stands out! Attention to details like the quilting and beads make it even more elegant. I am glad you found the video and feel confident about putting in a zipper - they can be tricky.
    Keep up the good work.
