• Heartfelt House Purse

    DQ KB Heartfelt House Purse 1

    Our collaboration with Eileen Hull’s Design Team continues and I get to share her House Pocket Stitchlit! I love mini houses of all kinds and with six grandlittle girls I decided to make a purse that they would enjoy playing with. This pocket and die set is very versatile. I have so many ideas to make with it! How about a cute card for Mother’s Day coming up.
