Purses to Finish
Please don't think I have ignored the poll request for more purses in my shop, I haven't - I just can't seem to get them done! I have two in progress and one in my head. I'm most excited about the one in my head that will be made from a flour sack, but I have decided I am not allowed to begin sewing until I finish these knit ones.
Let me walk you through these pictures a bit. This first purse, the red one on the right, has a lovely celtic
cable for the front panel and it is being made from upcycled yarn. I plan to line it with a dark chocolate brown, and have a button loop closure. The strap will also be knitted and make the purse some what rectangular. Can you see it?
The recycled silk bag will have a button closure as well, but will be a bit different. As you can see from this smaller photo it opens large at the top
so I plan to have it button closed across one direction and have the handles on the opposite sides so that it brings it all together like the top photo. I realize that is hard to picture, but I thought I'd at least try to describe it.
So which style do you like best? Any ideas to add to these bags? I'd love to hear from you!
