L'Atelier Perdu - A Maree Basse

I love this beautiful stitching basket. I stitched it on 32 count cream Thieffry linen 2 over 2. A very stiff linen from France. For all you Americans out there this is the linen to buy for these type of construction projects and it is so much less costly then Zweigart.

I loved how Mamilou Creations did hers with the handle so I did the same for easy carry.
I used red dyed mother of pearl rings, red faded striped Japanese linen for the lining I bought from Etsy. Theiffry linen bought at Le Comptoir des Fees for nearly $40.00 a meter.

Instead of doing a scissor case per the directions, I made the beach cabins into a needlebook with a simple piece of cream felt inside. Now I am stitching "The Duchess" from the same designer.
