Mary Ann's Star Purse
Type of item: Accessory
Style: Casual, Traditional
Cotton fabrics, complex cloth, antique button
What was your inspiration?
At our monthly American Sewing Guild meeting yesterday, we were treated to a workshop by member Mary Ann Sheppard, an excellent teacher and a busy, creative lady! With her expert guidance, several of us made her signature Star Purse and I truly enjoyed learning new techniques and practicing some old ones.
My purse is embellished with a piece of complex cloth that I had made several years ago. I added an antique button just for fun.
What are you most proud of?
I love this purse: inside and out, there are lots of pockets, and I had enough fabric left over to whip up an insert that keeps my phone, mints, cards and more organized and easy to reach. I think I finally found the perfect pursethanks, Mary Ann!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Have Mary Ann guide you! :) But if that's not possible, just take your time.
