Vintage Textile to Treasured Purse

A few years ago I purchased a piece of handwoven linen at an estate sale and I have used that piece of fabric in several projects since then.  It is fairly coarsely woven so is beautiful to hand stitch and that is just what I did when I created this little purse.
The purse came to the attention of the editor of Art Quilting Studio magazine and I was asked to submit an article and photographs of the purse for their Winter 2014 magazine.  I received the magazine in the mail today to find a beautiful three-page article on this little purse.

Congratulations Kathy! The purse is really elegant and I love the clasp you used on it. We're both happy for you!
