Pretty Stitched Purse - Craft Thread

Hello Friends! Quilt Market is fast approaching this weekend in Houston, Texas so I wanted to share this fun sewing project using the new Tim Holtz Eclectic Elements Thread. 

I'm a Big fan of the new Craft Thread. The thread is thick for hand stitching, it has a dull finish, sews beautifully without tangling and comes in 3 color palettes warm colors, cool colors and neutrals. I love that it's on a spool so there's no tangling and you don't have to separate it. If you want to learn more about the thread head over to Paula Cheney's blog.

I created this fun purse with patchwork and little stitched flowers.

Mother of pearl buttons and vintage lace makes the perfect addition. 

Look how the French Knots make cute flowers over the stitched band. 

Even the Hearts are hand stitched with the Eclectic Elements Craft Thread. 

If your interested in the full pattern for this project it's featured in the Simply Vintage Magazine, Autumn 2016, No. 20. 

Thanks for dropping by!
