I love designing needlepoint bags because they are just so practical, hardwearing and beautiful.


My second needlepoint bag design is called Meadow. This time it’s a shoulder bag for the essential bits and pieces, like phones, masks and lippy which a girl needs every day.

The canvas is hand painted in one long piece which after stitching is folded and simply sewn together on the fold lines.

Instructions are fully illustrated to help you turn your canvas into this beautiful little bag


The design for the Doris handbag was inspired by the pattern on a 1940s apron.

The two versions are Summer and Winter, both shown here.

Each Studio Stitches kit arrives in a practical calico bag ideal for holding  all the wool, scissors and other bits you will need for your project.

Your kit bag contains:

  • A full colour printed 10 count cotton canvas
  • All the tapestry wool you will need to complete your cushion (and more if the dog eats it)
  • Two tapestry needles
  • Detailed instructions and ongoing support.

Happy stitching!
