old school embroidered

I was helping my grandma clean out some of her old sewing stuff awhile back, and found a gorgeous embroidered tea towel that was only half finished. My grandma didn't want it anymore, and I thought my cousin might appreciate the sentimentality - not being much of an embroiderer I decided to cut it up (sorry!) and turn it into a clutch. It's made of embroidered linen & denim, and lined with calico. I like the mish-mash of old embroidery styles and the dark denim. A neat little vintage button for closure.

I'm giving it to my cousin tonight for her birthday - hope she likes it!
