Needlepoint coin purse

This is the first time I have made a coin purse or anything with a mettle frame. I really like how it looks and I didn't actually find it too hard to make. What I need to do , though, is go back over it and perfect it. Once you have made something new you either have to make another one or polish the original so it comes out perfectly. The metal frame was relatively easy to attach and with the needlepoint rose it just looks so effective. I need a bit more practice and I need to look at some videos so I can get the fit exactly right. I also need to be able to get the joins of both sides of the purse better so no canvas is showing at all. I had been careful but obviously not careful enough. I am happy with it and feel like I have mastered something worthwhile which has pulled my skills levels up.
