Type of item: Accessory
Style: Funky, Cute
A scrap of fabric from my sister's huge collection. I used wool, ribbon and thread to create the stitched designs. The purse uses a magnetic snap as closure. I thought the stitching was busy enough that a clasp or other hardware would be distracting. There are also zippers with a decorative slide, metals rivets and rings. The interior lining is a poly/cotton print.
What was your inspiration?
I love the idea of stitching texture. This (annoying) bit of fabric seemed like a great background for stitching with the wools and ribbon I got from my sister huge collection of fabric and notions.
What are you most proud of?
I'm not a quilter and this is a new concept for me. I'm also not attuned to abstract work, but I find that exploring the media is inspirational.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Choose a fabric that inspires you.
