Ta-dah! I Finished off the first ten purses. The colors in this photo are as accurate as I could manage with my limited editing skills. It's the finishing work that kills me every time. I despise any end-tucking, decorative-bobble-making, twisty fringing etc and it takes me along while to work up the nerve to spend my whole day finishing what I started. This is one reason why I am so excited to have this blog because I feel a bit more accountable and it keeps me motivated.
I AM NOT and expert seamstress by any means and this was a total learning experience for me.
But I do feel better about them now that they are all spruced up with tassels and frogs. I feel like I would consider purchasing one at a fair which as a big leap from how I felt at the beginning, staring down at my first attempt. :P
Here are a few images of purses and detail work There is a bit of puckering where I hand stitched on the frogs but over all I am decidedly relieved at the turn out:
Sorry the details are a bit fuzzy...
Okay, well that's a start anyways. I'll try and make sure my next images are a bit smaller and clearrer. :)
And now off to finish as many popcorn toques as humanly possible in a day. See you soon!
