During my stitching retreat last weekend. I started two purses--not something I intended to do, but I was inspired. I finished them this weekend. One is for me and the other for my soon-to-be step-daughter-in law. I used my old favorite book Making Vintage Bags for the patterns, which I reviewed here, and am, as usual when I use patterns from this book, extremely happy with the results!
|The maroon one is for me. I use a bracelet I've had since I was in high school for the handle!|
|The pattern called for a ribbon rose as decoration. I substituted it with a shiny bobble and some wired ribbon accents.|
|I may embellish my purse a little more, but I need to think about what else I may want to add.|
