Another Little Swing Purse

I love the colors in this purse. I used silk dupioni and vintage laces as the main part of the purse. Lined it in silk. Added a silk yo yo flower, silk ribbon roses & leaves and a silk image of a lovely lady. I got the image from Shabby Cottage Studios. Gail has always had wonderful images. She also has a wonderful and fun monthly challenge at Mind Wide Open. Here are some close ups. I used lots of tiny beads & silk threads for embroidery. I love how silk thread just flows so easily through the materials. I was getting ready to put this one on my Etsy, when a friend came by, saw it and had to have it as a gift for someone. So now I shall start all over again for my Etsy. But I don't mind at all. I am just so pleased she liked it. I enjoy making these. Just spreading the word about crazy quilting. :-)

What a beautiful purse! I just love it. You do such nice work! My goal this year is to make a purse,but it'll have to wait until I get some other projects done and until my sister can give me a hand as I've never made one before.

Sharon, this is so beautiful. I can't master CQing with silks and other shiny, slippery fabrics. You did! I always use 100% cotton. I like the look of both! Ah...OA fingers!

What was your "word verification" on my blog that made you laugh? Something about saving scraps?
