Make a Wish - Purses

June 28, 2012


Dandelions seem to be covering our lawn at the moment.  I know they are a weed, but I have to admit I kind of like to see them :)  I have truly had a month of dandelions with hottie covers,  capes, and coats all with my dandelion design.

As it happens there was a small amount of grey wool left from making a wee dandelion coat, enough to make a couple of purses for my shop.  Embroidered purses haven't featured on my work table for a few months, so it was an enjoyable afternoon spent making them and I am getting faster at embroidering them now.



I plan to keep one for myself to use as a little makeup purse within my handbag.   It is just the right size for small amount of makeup I wear.  Perhaps it might be fun to make some larger bags with this design too?
