This One Stitch

Have you ever started with one stitch and decided to see what you could do with it?? That is what I did for my Grandmothers Christmas gift. I made her a tiny purse to carry to church with her.
I started with the chain stitch thinking that I would make vines.
Then with the detached chain variation stitch I made the leaves.

From there I made the flowers.

this started with me thinking: What can I do with just this one stitch. Well here is my answer......I can do a whole purse! This stitch made everything from the vines to the flowers! I am so happy with how this project turned out, I am going to try another project using "just one stitch!"
Here is how the whole purse looks:
