R's Purse

 
 
 
 
My purse pieces were finally dry and I could assemble them.

I first sewed the labels inside the inner portion of the bag, then sewed up the side
and back, then the side and front.

I found a big snap in my drawer of assorted notions and sewed it to the flap back and the purse front.

I just love thrift stores for cards of old buttons and hook-and-eyes and silk blanket-edge bias tape, etc!

Voila...it's finished. I hope she likes it.

What you did with an old sweater is fantastic! What a great idea, and I'm sure your friend will treasure it for the rest of her life now. It is part of her Father, and part of her best friend all in one piece. Just marvelous!! I love your ingenuity...... :)

Love the purse!! Did you use pencil roving to make the scrolls? or did you bravely needle felt each fibrous thread??
