Rose Red Embroidered Clutch Bag Kit


Inspired by Victorian whitework and the wild roses growing in the village hedgerows, this design fits perfectly within the silver frame of an elegant clutch bag.

The design is printed onto cotton twill so you may embroider as much or as little as you like before making up the bag, ideal for both beginners and more experienced stitchers. The kit contains white embroidery thread but you may experiment with any colours you have to hand.

The finished bag is slightly wider than 8" (20cm) and is approximately 6" (15cm) deep.

The kit contains - full colour instructions and pattern, printed outer fabric, wadding, inner lining fabric, white embroidery thread for the entire design, opal and pomegranate seed beads, white sewing thread for attaching the seed beads, silver clutch handle, embroidery and beading needles.

The kit DOES NOT contain the glue needed to attach the finished bag to the clutch handle - I am petrified of it leaking in the box and the tubes are very large containing sufficient glue to complete four or five bags. I recommend using Guttermann HT2 fabric glue available in the haberdashery section.

Although not essential an embroidery hoop is great for keeping your fabric taut and a sewing machine speeds up the dull seam stitching!
