What materials did you use? This was a purse that I received as a "promotional item" from The Body Shop. It is a natural linen type material with a "shot" of gold sparkle. It is nicely lined with an interior pocket, so embroidering it in the traditional method would have required me to unstitch the lining and wrangle it into the hoop. In fact, to embroider this large of an area, I would have had to split open the side seam as well.

What are you most proud of? Giving a "new look" to a purse in a short amount of time.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't be afraid to use completely different colors than the ones I set in the designs! These are the same designs used in the first session on the bright pink purse just done in various earth tones for a more subtle embellished result.
