Finished!

I am now finished with my purse. I love how it turned out. The colors are soft muted shades of sage , a mellow yellow, rust, all the colors of Fall. I dyed and blended the lace motifs and silk ribbons. The back of the bag is a sheared chenille in a warm rust color. The strap is also the chenille, hanging length of 20 inches. I was really lucky to find the 6 inch fringe. The colors are exactly the colors in the purse. The purse before the fringe is 10 by 8 and has a shimmering lame lining. It's truly a swing purse.
