Ann Hull’s Purse

This purse was inspired Ann Hull’s beautiful 1836 sampler.

Embroidered with one of the motifs of the sampler, the Ann Hull’s Purse is quite sophisticated. It is stitched with silk threads from The Thread Gatherer over hand dyed linen from Weeks Dye Works. I also created a brooch that matches with the purse and the chart is available as a separate design.

Chartpack includes complete stitching and finishing instructions, conversions for DMC cotton threads
