WANTED: 1960s Plain Straw Purse/Needlepoint Initials

Posted by maddielee (My Page) on

Does anyone remember the straw purses that one would place their Needlepoint Initials on that were popular in the late 60's?

The straw bags were very plain. We would needlepoint our "monogram" on a panel and glue them to the purse. Then add ribbon around the top of the purse to match the needlepoint colors.

If anyone remembers and can direct me to an outlet for these purses, I cwould be very greatful.

Thank you.
