Love your stitching, color choices and purse design....a project I would like to try in future. What type of background fabric did you use? It looks to be heavier than cotton, and very appropriate with the lovely yarn trim. Congrats on your orders, and thanks for the inspiration!!
C Maes answered:
Thank you for your encouragement. I used a micro suede for the background. I felt for a purse I would want a heavier fabric. Even though the fabric is heavier it did not hinder the ability to embellish it. Have fun with your project!
