The Purse Reticule
The Purse Reticule has been oohed and awed over ever since it was shown at the last Smocking Arts Guild of America Convention in 2013! It looks like a purse but when the tasseled ties are undone the "Purse" unfolds to reveal four cases, a needle book, pincushion and an emery to store sewing notions. It's embellished with lots of silk ribbon embroidery and beads. What's not to like about this very unusual pattern? It comes with detailed instructions, photos, diagrams and all pattern pieces for you to make your own Purse Reticule.
