Then I made another of those purses that I love so much and have now made 3 versions of. This last one is made of the lovely batiked linen from the batik tutorial. I lined it with some fabric from a failed dyeing experiment and bound the edges and lined the shoulder strap with some hand dyed (LWI) I did with Rosalita this past spring. I ordinarily don't like yellow but it does go well with the batiked linen.
I just realized that I forgot to upload the photos of the first purse I made from the old quilt. It was beautiful and very unique but wasn't working for me as a purse to I gave it to my friend Jessie, of crow cookie fame. Well, here it is:
These are beautiful purses. More unusual than jewelry, I think.ReplyDelete
