Lil Pip Sew Box Purse - with hand stitching

If you are a new visitor to my blog, you may not know that I have a bit of a thing for owls. I think foxes and flamingos are the new 'thing' but I'll stick to my love of owls. 

This coin purse is an example of the other option in the pdf pattern I provided to the Sew Box Subscribers - with a square bottom instead of rounded. I honestly am not sure which I prefer as I love them both. 

This is a self drafted little hand embroidery. Nothing too hard as I like the simplicity of back stitch. A couple of french knots for the eyes and ok a little chain stitch on the branches but you could just do back stitch here too.

I love the purple reverse and the bright green lining peeking out!

Will you give hand stitching a go? Strawberries? Animals? What would you try?

Don't forget to share on social media (I love Instagram!) using the hashtag #lilpipsewboxpurse and check back throughout the week for other examples.
