.@VickiBatman - #handbag Monday: Aren't you a sweet girl #MFRWorg

~ #Handbag Monday ~


I found this baby on eBay and was intrigued by the stitching as the background is done in horizontal stitches. I like that it is done differently than the basic needlepoint stitch I tend to favor. The girl is done with petit point. And the flowers in basic needlepoint.

Here's a close up:

Isn't that interesting? And the picture of the girl is precious. This image reminds me of a folk art picture.

This one makes a great evening bag. The black fabric is like suede, probably a felt. There is no picture on the backside.

Obviously, you've noticed I favor needlepoint handbags. Do you favor a particular style?

I like black leather bags. I think because they hold up so well. :)

Hi, Melissa! I have a bunch of black leather bags too. You're right, they do go with everything and a good polish, they last forever.

Wait until my new one comes. lol It's turquoise.

Love the needlepoint stitching. I would be afraid to carry every day because the bag would get messed up. Need to buy myself a new bag...soon.

It's beautiful. I like leather bags because (and I don't know why) I carry so much with me.

Hi, Sylvia! If it gets messed up, so be it. You know I don't spend tons.

Hi, Marian! Thank you, my friend. Yep, big bags equals tons of stuff. Leather is great because it can be fixed, except for cuts. Harder to repair that. Hugs.
