Embroidery Project – Small Snail Purse/Bag with Vintage Snail Embroidery, “Clean Day” Snail Embroidery Part 4

Vintage Days of the Week Snails Embroidery… “Clean Day”


Here is a closer look at the little face…and the bubbles and brush.

DMC floss just didn’t have any really color hues ‘bright enough’ for these little snails. (Especially since they will be bordered with a very bright pink edging.) So, I visited my Local Needlework Shop, Fiddlesticks (in Hawaii) and bought some Anchor thread for these little guys. Here you can see the threads with their “shell line up”. 😉 [The shadow is a large tree out back that just won’t get out of the sun ray for the picture!]

The first snail is done.

Now…off the to the “Iron Day”!

Your life needs fun. Go ahead, have some fun!

  1. What an inconsiderate tree! The snial meets every expectation, she looks absolutely gorgeous. I doubt I look anything like that on cleaning day

  2. Very nice! What do you plan to do with all the snails!

  7. Hi Vanessa,
    Thanks for peeking in on the snails.
    They will be part of the outer fabric of a “Japanese Knot Bag” purse. I’m just starting to cut the fabric for the purse and posting how it will go together. It should be completed shortly.
