Take a stitch Tuesday Challenge week 15 - Oyster stitch

I made this bag to carry all thing I need during weekend with my friends. It is really big: 60x60 cm or 24x24 inches.
Material: old jeans worn by me or by my darling.
Lining: blue cotton.
Sun=pocket: white cotton cloth, tie-dyed in yellow. Face is painted and sunrays are embroidered - you can see detail on the third picture.
Can you imagine how heavy is the bag when full of different thing including books?

This is oyster stitch, my homework from Sharon during TAST. It was hard for me to learn this stitch.

Barred chain stitch - TAST week 10

Another example of this interesting stitch.

Barred chain stitch - TAST week 10

I am a little behind with TAST, because I have to spend several days in hospital. I want to finish all stitches this week.
This sample of barred chain stitch was made on hand painted cotton cloth. I combined chain stich with bared chain stitch and add some small dots to make the stitch more interesting.
