Despite any evidence to the contrary, I maintain that I do not do embroidery.

Self-lined linen canvas bags, combination of crewel wool outlining and felt appliqué. Crowns are filled with convent stitch (aka klosterstich), which is a pretty neat stitch. Racaire's posts on it are very helpful (and include some jaw-dropping work).
