Back in February I was commissioned to make a little coin-purse for the mother of a Dear Someone. Her birthday was on Valentine’s Day and he informed me of it the weekend of so I was unable to complete it in time to mail it. It went out in the next package sent in that direction, however.
Because I find it best to work with natural light and not when I’m tired, I would bring my ribbons and needles with me to school. Then, when I should have been taking notes, I would slowly stitch my way to completing it.
I think the finished design was my prettiest work and by far the prettiest coin-purse I have yet to craft. My mother said that the design was a little large. I thought it was rather perfect. I think the shape of the purse is a tad uneven but that is what happens when something is made entirely by hand. Its all hand-stitched, you see.
