Little Blooms: a Mini Snap Purse is the first Stitch Snippets stitch-along for 2023.

The project takes you step-by-step through creating a beautiful mini snap purse, perfect for small treasures. The embroidery is worked with floche, a soft cotton embroidery thread with a lovely sheen. The finished purse is lined with a coordinating cotton fabric. It features a small magnetic snap and a delicate scalloped trim hand stitched in perle cotton.

The embroidery stitches are simple and accessible for beginners and beyond. The construction of the purse, though somewhat complex, is suitable for determined beginners and beyond. The construction can be either machine sewn or hand sewn, and we cover both approaches in the stitch-along.

This materials kit contains all the supplies used to stitch the project:
  • High quality embroidery linen in dark natural
  • Coordinating cotton lining fabric
  • 8 shades of cotton floche
  • Perle cotton for the trim
  • Magnetic snap
  • Needles

Please Note: Little Blooms is a stitch-along offered on Needle 'n Thread. The instructions will unfold in installments on the website.


Beginning Monday, March 20th, the materials kit will ship via Priority Mail to the US and Canada only.
