About your Victorian Purse Project...

 The purse is created with a large selection of delectable silks, and overdyed silk flosses, silk ribbons, pearls, sparkling beads. You can easily learn to finish everything by hand, with Lisa's webcast video guidance.. The front, side and back panels are lined with matching dupioni silk, as are all the matching smalls; the scissor fob heart, the pipkin, and the combination scissorskeep/ needlebook, all fully hand-stitched.

On the front panel of the purse is an English country scene with two ladies in long dresses reaching for the fruit of the ‘love’ tree in their garden. In the distance is their house on a hill with sheep grazing peacefully in the meadows. Under this graceful scene is a vine with large silk ribbon flowers, decorated with pearls. Then at the bottom is a delicious row of Bargello, incorporating the colours already used in the scene. The back panel shows a monogram of your initials enhanced by a floral vine. You’ll need to adjust the vine slightly if your letters are a bit wider than those shown on the back cover! The same silk floral and Bargello rows continue the front design elements to the back. The sides of the purse are stitched on mulberry coloured linen, using satin pins and wave pulled thread stitches entwined with a delicate vine of silk ribbon and flosses. Gorgeous! I hope you’ll love the colours and stitches of this project as much as I do! - Thea
