I finally got my purse mailed in for the purse swap. I made this purse a couple of years ago in a class I took at a Martha Pullen school. I spent 5 days with Linda McGehee learning to make different purses. This was the first one we made and I think it was the most fun. We used shiny organza and sandwiched glitter and threads between two pieces of organza. We then played with all the stitches on the Pfaff machines, using lots of speciality threads. Linda has great purse patterns and I loved spending time with her.
It was hard to give up this purse but I don't really live the kind of life that I can use one like this. Of course, when we went on the cruise this summer, it would have been great when we got dressed up but I forgot to take it with me so it has never been used and is ready for its new home.
I can't wait to see what I receive in the trade. I love purses of all kinds.
