Crazy quilted purse

A while ago I dabbled in Crazy Patchwork and wanted to add lace to this purse, but couldn't find exactly what it needed.

This was my first time stitching velvet and Crazy Patchwork.  Using  stranded cottons, beads, a shisha mirror and even incorporating a perlè bound washer on the lower left of the back.  There were lots of stitches that were new to me - split stitch, feathered chain, double herringbone - and a few not so new - chain stitch, french knots, and lazy daisy flowers.

I then decided I needed to make my own lace.

Next post ..... lacemaking!

    1. Thankyou for your comment Josie, I tried to comment on your blog earlier today, but I'm not sure it worked - I will look back later to see.

      Your Easter idea is lovely, so colourful, and I will definitely have to make an appliqué purse like yours!
