Purse & Hussif

The hussif unfolds as you will see in the pictures but when folded up, it fits perfectly in the purse. Ladies in Victorian times carried their needlework with them as they had servants to do everything else! They visited and 'stitched' a lot.

The little thing hanging off the side of the purse is a tomato pin cushion that I covered with the dupioni silk to match!
