A simply exquisite sewing purse should be on everyone’s stitching agenda. Working mainly with Au ver á Soie, students will create a beautifully designed purse featuring a lovely verse about friendship. The soft, shiny silks are absolutely superb on cream 36 count linen. The inside and back offer even more space for sampler motifs and personalization. Tucked inside the purse is a pair of scissors in their own little pocket and a tiny needle case. Lots of stitches are used, including, mosaic, queen, petit point, eyelets, French knots, free-hand satin, and backstitch. Turning the finished stitching into a sewing purse will be a snap – there is no machine stitching involved! Each step will be demonstrated in class. Folded, the purse measures approximately 4 ¾” square.
Kit includes: 36 Count Cream linen, silks, Cotton lining fabric, Scissors, Needles, Felted Wool, Button, Magnet and complete instructions for creating and finishing with pictures.
Please bring extra lighting and magnification if needed.
