Dainty Purse

Yesterday I decided to make a purse with a dainty heart motif. I got the idea for the heart motif from Julia who has the most beautiful heart motifs on her blog using a feather stitch with beads as a base and then adding flowers.
I used light blue satin fabric with a coordinating cotton print for the lining. Satin ribbon for handles, and organza ribbon for a tie closure. I used 7mm ecru silk ribbon for the flowers, 4mm green for the leaves, and 1 strand floss for the feather stitching with tiny size 15 seed beads. I also added a small Czech glass bead to the center of the large flower.
The purse is 6 1/4 inches tall by 5 3/4 inches wide.
I think this purse will make a great Christmas gift for someone on my list!
