Painted and Beaded Purse



At last I can get back into my crafting again,Life has been so busy,I had a couple day trips one to Norwich Market the other to Cambridge,I was desperate to stock up with fabrics,cottons lace etc,Norwich Market is just the place ! fantastic I managed to
purchase everything i needed........this purse is made with some lovely cotton embroidered material i bought there,which i decided to paint and totally alter,not sure if that was a good idea lol,I enjoyed doing it .

The image is a transfered fabric one,I had to alter that to by painting it in places to match,then fixed in a brass metal disc.,I,m just looking for some press studs now for closure.

You went to Cambridge and didn't call me!!! (mock outrage ensues - LOL).Funnily enough, I also went to Norwich market the other week. Haven't been there since 1995 - it had changed a bit.

I've already commented on this lovely purse on flickr.

Oh.. Pattie... it is so beautiful... To finish my studies I was writting about women of 18th century in France and this little purse reminds me of these times... so feminine and so "Marie-Antoinette"... I love it!

It's gorgeous Pattie - and when I click on it to enlarge the picture, it's even more gorgeous!! Norwich market sounds fantastic.

Great to see some more local skill put to the net - no greater way than to let everybody see the big picture.
keep up the good work.

Pattie,
these purses are just beautiful! Do you have a post where you tell about the fabric paper - how it's made and how strong it is, etc.
These look like something I'd love to have in my shop!
