Gypsy Soul Purse Done
I completed my little purse today. I worked on it all yesterday and some today. I did a lot of stiching on it and that is what took the most time. This is the printed fabric I demonstrated the technique on yesterday on this blog. I stamped the printing with stazon ink and some of my stamps. I used the letters printed on fabric and sewed around them after fusing them on with that fusing material. I sewed on little faux antique hearts, a button and my favorite thing: a real rusty old key. You can hardly see it here in this pic-on the right. I also sewed little jewels around two sides. This was a soothing piece of art. I had forgotten how soothing the repetitive motion of making little seams can be. It brought back memories of when I used to embroidery around printed fabric to make little pillows and baby blankets.
