Last week, I talked about my design process for creating a large coin purse. You can read the post here. I finished the purse and am using it. Here is what I did....
I drew my flower design on plain white fabric and painted it.
I also want to add some depth to the base of the purse, so I used a circle template with a dry brush and layered circles on the front and back pieces.
I decided to quilt the front and back with a simple linear pattern; I marked the pattern on the fabric with chalk.
Finally came the assembly. This is the first time that I made a purse with a purse frame; there is definitely a knack to it and can be cumbersome.
Though it was a bit tough getting the purse into the frame- I would do it again in a minute!
