These were made for the tourist trade in the 1970s, are completely hand-stitched and in excellent condition. The fabric is a lightweight cotton much like muslin with cotton embroidery floss used for the embroidery stitches. The size is 8″ by 9″, perfect to edge with fabric for a pillow or to frame as part of a grouping.
