Embroidery is a beautiful way to make an everyday object feel special—a sentiment that fits perfectly with this project. Inspired by traditional Nordic embroidery designs, explore the world of wool-on-wool embroidery with a variety of stitches and learn how to transform the fabric and liner into the miniature purse, along with attaching the kiss clasp like a pro. The embroidery yarns are from our sheep! All of the steps and techniques featured in this course are great skills to learn if you are eyeing up making a full-scale traditional purse in the futur.
