The Cross-stich Clutch

Crappy light, since daylight don't come in abundance here this time of year

Last week i bought an old, framed cross stitch at the thrift shop, since i wanted the frame. It felt wrong though, as a fellow thread-tinker, to just discard the cross stitch. So i made a clutch out of it!

I put some fabric adhesive on the back to prevent the stitches from ripping. Black cotton for edges and lining, and that's it!

Adhesive. Yes this picture is indeed very exciting.

I kind of made it up as i went, so there is probably a hundred better ways to go about putting it together, hence i will offer no tutorial. It's for your own good.
