My grandmother says that cross stitch used to be one of the popular needlecrafts in her times and she's quite a cross-stitch expert! But I haven't seen much cross-stitch craftworks these days. I love doing cross stitch as it is one of my first craft works and of course my grandmother was and still is my mentor. I've been looking for antique, vintage cross stitch patterns for a long time and finally collected a number of patterns.
Anyways, I wanted to get started with a simple design so I decided to make a cross stitch purse. It didn't take much time to create the cross stitch pattern template and make the purse. The vintage look on the purse is really cute!
