Well, not The Beatles, but my beetles. My Melissa Shirley Beetle Purse is back from the finishers. I love it. I started this canvas in an embellishment class with Brenda Hart a year or so ago and finally finished it.
My favorite part of the stitching is the background. It’s a woven open stitch done in metallic. It goes fast and is easy to compensate. What more could we want. With that plus I could focus on the details in the wonderful beetles.
The leather is the perfect shade of olive green. The size is perfect. Who knows, I may even carry this one. Funny thing is, I irrationally hate bugs. I had to have this purse, go figure.
I did document all the threads and stitches. A complete stitch guide is available should anyone else want their own Beetle Purse.
Wishing you a happy Sunday.
