Hand Embroidered Bag / Clutch...


Ribbons, Hand Embroidery and Glass Beads



Can you guess what this bag is made from ??









Mattress Ticking...
The whole bag is made from mattress ticking !

The White lines are hand embroidered and the dark blue lines are covered with a ribbon that has been "couched" into place with glass beads.

So easy, with straight, clean lines.



Beautifully lined with the lining secured by Colonial Knots.



Bag measures 8.5in. x 5.5in. (21.59cm x 13.97cm)
This was a project offered by the Red Rose Embroidery Guild and taught by the extremely talented Irene Anderson.

    You have bolts of Mattress Ticking ???? You are one lucky gal. ;)
    I actually made two of this design. One I made into a bag, the other one I will be placing in an old window frame.

  7. Hi Mary...
    The Pattern for the Hand Embroidered Sampler Bag can be found in the Hand Embroidery "Inspirations" magazine issue #13 from 1997.
    It is no longer in print, however can be found in venues like Ebay, etc.
