Everlasting Love – Italian Purse

A collaboration design with Just a Thought

A beautiful sewing purse, with two secret compartments for sewing tools, stitched with antique sampler motifs, dedicated to my dearest friend Marsha and her husband Kenny. The original 18th Century sewing purse, belonging to my collection of antiques, was reproduced by Judy Odell from Just a Thought.

The chart pack contains complete stitching instructions for my Everlasting Love Italian Purse.
