Another Hand Made Item Better Than Mass Market

Needlepoint Land reminds us that although we can buy a cheap mass market needlepoint hip flask, Elizabeth Turner has lovely canvases and leather flasks so you can customize your needlepoint to the person who will carry this.  You also will get a leather wrapped flask with accent needlepoint which I think will help keep the stitching clean as hands won't touch it constantly.

Here are the designs available from Elizabeth Turner.  I believe the monograms can be customized to the letters of your choice but check with your local shop on that before you order.

  1. Yes, but does anyone know where to get one you can design & stitch yourself? Is there a kit? I'd love to make one for DH.

    1. Liz, you need to talk to M's Canvashouse and see what they say. Meredith who owns the shops also owns Elizabeth Turner Designs, so the staff should be able to tell you if a flask with blank canvas is available, or perhaps make it available just for you. http://www.mscanvashouse.com/index-1.html
