Vintage roses embroidery purse or make up bag. Present for Mum.

Vintage roses embroidery purse or make up bag. Present for Mum.
Love this


This fabulous vintage embroidery with its red rose, has made up into the prettiest of make up bags. The cross stitch is so dense, it looks like tapestry. Useful also as a coin purse or for storing precious keepsakes, it would make a lovely present for an embroiderer, or as a present for Mum.

The embroidery has been backed onto cotton, but it is still soft
It measures 16 cm across
It measures 12 cm down
There is a lilac zip fastening measuring 16 cm
A finger hook on the front means you can hook it up at home, and admire the handiwork
The lining is a pretty pink floral vintage cotton
The back of the purse is made from blue denim, to give it some edge
There is a scattering of mother of pearl buttons on the front
My own embroidered name tag finishes it off
The pattern placement and buttons used, will vary very slightly from purse to purse.

I like to reuse when I can. Your little purse will be posted out wrapped in clean, recycled packaging.
It will be sent by Royal Mail 2nd class, which takes about 3 days.


What a fabulous piece of old table linen to be given by a friend. I hope I can do it justice with my stitchery.
