Make it as a three piece, six-paneled purse suitable for a bridal accent, an any-occasion accessory or part of that Renaissance recreation, depending on the fabrics you choose. The acorn-shaped pattern, detailed accents, edgings, buttonholes (for ribbon closure) and tassel detail are all stitched in the hoop. With its grosgrain ribbon closure, the bag is reminiscent of ‘coin purses’ from a bygone era, made modern by today's technology and fabrics. Plus, it's reversible! Easy in-the-hoop project with lots of possibilities. Bring your own fabrics, see supply list for details.
