Gift of Mrs. Hilda R. Nutall in memory of Magdalena Nuttall

Single rectangle of undyed linen originally folded in half , possibly to form two faces of a bag. The two resulting squares are each embroidered in rose with a symmetrical crosse or "X"s, one more elaborate than the other. The fabric on the face with the more elaborate design is discolored.
