Landscape Purse painted with fabric paints on Taffater fabric,then embroidered with French Knots and beads.
2nd Stage......the reeds or stems are freesewn on my machine.The back is just muted painted colours
I first started by using an A4 piece of felt as a template and backing for my taffater fabric,then just folding.
The Flower in center is a brooch which i altered with alcohol inks to match,and had to saw the clasp off the back so it laid flat (that was fun lol) then I sewed it on.,the sequins I sewed a little bead onto each one.
Quite pleased with the outcome,found sewing the french knots boring,thats why theres not many :-] the birds in the sky i actually sewed, I was tempted to just draw in with pen,but thought it would look better this way,its all a learning curve,I,m soooooo loving it !
