Tapestry Purse done!

I spent the beginning part of this morning sewing together the tapestry purse.  I actually enjoy this part of the process.  I especially like sewing on the beads.

Let me show you the pictures and describe the steps.

This picture of the finished purse was taken on my bedside table before I wandered back to my studio to take the real pictures.
I sewed silk to the back of the weaving before I sewed the weaving into a purse.

I tucked the ends of the braid into the two corners of the purse before sewing up the sides of the purse.

Then I sewed the braid onto the purse with beads on each side of the braid. I then beaded around the flap of the purse.  This disguises all ugly seams.  And since most of my seams are ugly, beads are definitely my best friend.

This is the back of the finished purse.
