What materials did you use? Does this design look familiar? YES it is from your class materials but "tweaked" just a bit to create a custom embroidery for the front of this purse. AND GUESS WHAT? You can play with all the designs using the FREE Embrilliance software with the BX files from your course materials! The purse is a Pocket Pouch size Medium from Ghee's and you can check out the story of how this purse came to be on my blog -

Great design, Lisa. Thanks for providing this. I can think of a lot of ways this can be used.

Beautiful. Are the edges piping? I do a lot of repurposing and felting. Love what you did with this project.
