U R Priceless

Oh my,  it's my turn to share the little purses I've made.
And a testimony to how easy they are to make.

After spending a couple of weeks with this little dude (and his brother)

I needed to get busy after getting home Tuesday evening,

I had but yesterday afternoon to make my purses.
So in a couple hours I was able to get two purses done.
Now the direction in the pattern are well done and easy to follow.




If I could suggest something to help you when you make one, is if your lining is in the color of thread that you use to attach the mental frame, it makes it less stressful about whether or not the thread show on the inside.


I had these napkins that I bought at a flea market for a couple of dollars but they had stains and I had plans to use them on something and this work out perfectly.
 

So I fussy cut the embroider motif and then used empty space for the sides. Then I use the crochet edging as trim on my little purse.


I really like this one. Wish I could of had it up in the beginning 


I do plan on making a couple more using a doily


and some beautiful black beaded lace trim.


I'll add them to this post if I do get them done today. I hope to have them added to the pinterest along with all the other little purses that have been made. Go see for yourself.
