Combining fashion, design, textile art, and embroidery, this beautiful and practical guide shows crafters how to make one-of-a-kind embroidered purses. From simple 2-sided styles to elaborate gusseted box designs, from small elegant clutches to roomier drawstring bags, they’re inspired by the finest historical examples and an international array of textile patterns. Exquisite illustrations also suggest innovative and unusual ideas for embellishment. Stitch a Chinese Silk Clutch inspired by the sea, a purse with bonded silk and velvet, and a colorful, cylindrical English Patchwork Harlequin design—and then show them off with pride.
