Pulled thread embroidery is a beautiful form of whitework embroidery. This set comprising of an embroidery pouch and smalls (accessories) will be a wonderful addition to your sewing basket. The linen used is a 32 count evenweave but a 28 count can be substituted with adjustments needed for the trellis pattern. The basic stitches used are buttonhole and satin stitch, chain stitch, stem stitch and some filling stitches. The trellis pattern on the front is enhanced with some tiny beads.

The design was created as a sewing pouch but could easily be converted into an evening purse/bag by sewing up the sides and adding a cord or chain handle.
