I traced the shape of a shop model purse on 18-mesh canvas. Then I started stitching 18x18 stitch squares in basketweave with each color combination. To divide the squares I did 3 rows of pewter LaLame metallic, again in basketweave. Then for the finishing, the finisher made a shoulder-length cord from the LaLame.
Looking at this purse today I can see so many design possibilities, from varying the metallics in the squares to making the size of the square smaller to doing different stitches to. . . really, there are many more possibilities. Perhaps I'll explore some of them in the future on this blog.
