Needlepoint does not have to be old, stuffy florals...not to say that there aren't some really great florals out there! I love how hip needlepointing can be. Check out my leopard print satchel with vibrant red leather trim. The canvas is from L'Esprit de France.

I get compliments every time I carry it!

Or what about cuff bracelets? So much fun and a DIFFERENT use for needlepoint! Clara Wells Needlepoint has adorable canvases like the two examples below. Melissa Shirley Designs also has some nice canvases.

How about watch bands?
L'Esprit de France has cornered the market on fun watch bands. I even made a masculine one for Chris that we'll picture later.
