My close friend recently graduating from University. I asked her if there was anything she would like as a gift for her graduation and we decided on a reticule for her to use with her regency/18th century outfits.  

The bag is made from pure silk, lined with linen, and all the stitching is done in silk embroidery thread.  I found the floral pattern online, and drew it lightly onto the silk with pencil.  I stitched her inital into the centre using mostly satin stitch.  First time I've used satin stitch, so could be neater.  I attached a blue silk tassle to the bottom, and some blue silk ribbon  for the wrist straps.  Here's some pictures -







the embroidery only took an evening to draw up and complete the stitching, so went a lot quicker than I expected.  Lots of unpicking occured whilst trying to stitch the whole thing together!!

There are more pics and info here - http://embroideryemporium.blogspot.com/2011/07/regency-reticule-other-graduation-gifts.html.
Thanks for looking. V

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.
