I have been so busy with real life stuff the last few days, that I don't have any new stitching started to show you.
I did make these purses a while back and thought they would be nice to post.
I love this first one, it is not my design, it was in one of the Aussie Embroidery and Cross Stitch magazines.
The purse is made from a lace motif that has been very heavily beaded and Silk Ribbon Embroidered.
it's finished with a beaded tassel, sorry I've chopped the tassel off in the photo.
This black purse is my design.
I taught this purse in my embroidery class.
The purse is made up in velvet and brocade CQ, with hand painted laces, lots of SRE flowers and beading.
I think the bought beaded fringe picks up the colours of the silk ribbon and finishes the purse off nicely..
