I have been slowly working on getting another purse done. It's been quite a process. Made from all thrifted fabrics. One linen skirt, a black and white polka dot interior found as yardage, and a black and white floral print taken from an old house coat.
I really love embroidery. I love that I can take my sketches and turn them into fabric art. Here's my little black bird.
Two 12'' zippers are found in the interior. (They were actually 20'' zippers that I had to shorten.) I chose the light contrasting fabric to line the pockets so it's easier to find what you are looking for. I have a minor pet peeve about dark lined pockets inside purses.
And I have tried my hand at wire wrapping. I have been finding these great vintage buttons lately and really wanted to stretch my imagination on displaying them via wearable art. This was my first attempt using a thrifted 12K gold necklace, gold filled wire, and two tiny crystals.
I guess it turned out alright. I have a bigger plan in mind for the other three matching buttons, but practice makes perfect.
