This is a striking piece of stitching done on black canvas. The purse was stitched flat and then stitched together. The stitched area is 12.75” x 3.75”. Threads used include Kreinik’s #4 braid and #12 braid, Splendor silk, Overdyed floss and #8 DMC Perle Cotton. The inspiration for this pieces was to make an evening purse for my daughter that was large enough only to hold her cell phone, indentification, and some money.
