Succulent berries ripen on vines while attentive birds are aflutter waiting for their chance to sneak a few for dinner. Springtime bursts forth on this wonderful sewing purse which features a pocket inside to hold the matching scissors case, a pin keep with tiny pincushion to match. All are stitched on 35 count Weeks hand-dyed Parchment linen and features Gloriana over-dyed Florimell threads including Gloriana over-dyed silk floss. Also beautiful Soie d'Alger silks add to the luster of this design. The inside of the purse is lined with a beautiful French lining, printed with tiny berries on the fabric. As you can see, quality abounds. Also did I tell you about the tiny Bohin scissors with matching red handles? They fit perfectly into the scissors case and won't fall out because of the secret magnet. This little sewing purse when folded, measures 4" x 4" when completed.
