Tapestry crochet purse, Needlepoint block

In the world of crochet, I have been introduced to the concept of tapestry crochet thru the blog littlewoollie. You can see  So many wonderful projects on tapestry crochet in that blog.  She has given a neat and crisp tutorial for doing tapestry crochet.  I have followed that tute and has made a small piece  and turned that piece into a small purse.  I have used scraps of yarn for this piece.  Over to the purse now.

Also I have added a block in my needlepoint sampler.  I have done three stitches in the same block.  The first yellow band is upright cross, the band with red and green is rice stitch and the block in the middle with purple and green is byzantine stitch

I have tried some more samples in interlocking crochet.   Will come up with that in another post.  Till then happy crocheting ad happy embroidering.

I am linking this post to the Vintage embroidery Monday stitchery link party.


  1. The tapestry crochet makes a very compact surface. Would be perfect for things that need to be sturdy, like bags, purses and seat covers.
    I like your beautiful needlepoint. You have made a good combination and selected attractive colours.

  2. The tapestry crochet purse is very beautiful. I haven't made much progress with my tapestry pillow cover.

  3. Good to see your needlepoint, love the Byzantine stitch.


I would like to hear from you as it boosts me up a lot.
