A little bit of stitching

When I'm travelling by train I hate sitting with nothing to do, so I stitch!

This is a tiny purse I stitched on my recent journeys.   It is 3 x 4" approximately, with a wrist strap of 10".

The Flashing Scissors -  Tiny Purse

It was embroidered using Perlè thread.

The flowers are Sussex Puffs with buttons and beads in their centres.

The sides were attached to the zip, again in Perlè.   Then the purse was finished by continuing around the three open sides.

I included a name label just for added cuteness, hopefully!

I'm sure I'm not alone in stitching on the go?  If you stitch on the go, what are you stitching now?

Such a sweet little purse - it would be perfect to hold a lipstick and a set of keys if you didn't want to take a purse. As for the stitching on the go question - I don't generally end up doing that. No trains here so I'd be in the car and there are just too many potholes in our roads to feel very secure wielding sharp needles!!

Hi Mary Anne, thank you for visiting! I find it just right for my small change and a few notes. I have another purse for keys which I made to use in the summer when I have no pockets. I guess there aren't going to be many people who travel and stitch, perhaps only in the UK?

I always try to bring something small to stitch if traveling by plane and if I will be taking a road trip and not driving. :)

I walk everywhere and only take longer journeys a couple of times a year! Your purse is gorgeous, I absolutely love the 'country' feel!
