It took me a lot of time to make this beauty.. It was soo worth it!
Hi there!

Thanks for checking out my beautiful purse (if I may say so myself). I hope you like it.

I made myself a small purse. I always take it with me when I go somewhere. It fits everything I would like to bring with me. Every time I have it on me, it just brightens up my day.

The front is embroided with a Bargello pattern. It has a purse clasp to open it, a zipper at the back and a small pocket in the inside. I made the inside yellow to match the yellow in the pattern.

With Bargello patterns you don't use 'normal' cross-stitches, but 'flat'stitches (if I misused the term, please say so). Before I started working on the embroidery, I remade the pattern in MS Paint. This made me see what colours of yarn I could use and where to use it. It was actually quite easy: I just followed half of the rainbow and finished with white, grey and black.

After I finished the embroidery piece (which took me a lot, really a lot of time), I made the rest of the purse.

I hope you like it. If you want more info or would like to say something about my purse, just let me know.
