So Cute Purse!!

I love it when I have time to create.
Yesterday, a little sewing.
Linen fabric from a sale for the purse.
A bit of vintage lace trim across the top.
Lined with a cotton curtain panel.
Just the right weight for this piece.
Add some tiny buttons across the top,
and some lace trim for the leaves.

This is the same purse as above,
only on a darker background so you can see it better.

Remember the yards of gauze I got at the church sale?
(my thrifty find)
It makes great flowers.
This piece is tea stained.

How about a Lace Flower?

Another kind of gauze flower, and some trim added to the bottom.
I'm going to have fun making a few for the store.
Thanks for coming by.

Barbara Jean, that purse is ALMOST as sweet as you are. I really do love it. The linen with the lace and hand-made flowers is a beautiful combination. It's definitely "YOU". Thank you for sharing this lovely and romantic "bragable" on the Boardwalk Bragfest.
