Kantha purses

This wonderful array of Kantha items all made by Libby, was set out ready to show the girls what they were going to learn today.

Libby and I had prepared the 8" squares for the girls so all they had to do was start stitching the motif, a Chakra. They then embellished them with shisha mirrors, more stitching and shiny bits. Nearly all the girls went home with their purse finished.

As well as making their purse, three girls bought back their chicken stitching from the last meeting and turned it into a cushion.

When I left home this morning this Tree Peony flower was a tight bud, when it is fully open it is the size of a dinner plate!
