Here is the embroidery that decorates the small purse proposed in this article.
I decided to present this project because I have myself a small purse like that, made in boutis many years ago. I find it really handy on a trip, carrying the minimum necessary, slip into a pocket and have your hands (and mind) free.
here is the picture …
You can download the pattern of this purse HERE.
The finished embroidery, inspired by Hungarian folk art, measures about 9x9cm and I embroidered both sides.
For the finishing, which will be the subject of next week’s post, I used a 9 cm (3.5″) flexible internal clasp.
I chose to embroider with the following DMC stranded threads and here is the list
4124, 742, 4030, 3822, 4210, 4240, 3705
and the used stitches are
stem stitch, blanket stitch, double lazy daisy stitch, fly stitch, French knot and satin stitch.
As usual you will find them all explained in the “Stitches” section of the main menu.
The embroidery is entirely made with 2 threads except for the small yellow circles which are embroidered with 1 thread only.
The leaves are embroidered with stem and fly stitch. The yellow circles are made in satin stitch with 1 thread.
The flowers are embroidered with blanket and double lazy daisy stitch. Embroider a large French knot in the center.
