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.|
