Besides the Kelly Bag

Grace Kelly as a Married Princess

You probably know Grace Kelly popularized Hermes' Kelly bag, but although most of her purses appear to have been high quality leather, she did occasionally carry a traditional needlepoint purse in her preferred all tent stitch style.   Lycette Designs found the above lovely photograph of Princess Grace and Prince Rainier and posted it on their Facebook page.  (I borrowed the photo to repost here for those who don't have Facebook accounts.)

You can see the purse better in this display of many items of Grace Kelly's clothing.  It's in the first video at the 1:56 mark.
