Today I finished a little handbag! I call it Sweet Spring Simplicity! I added it to my Etsy Shop for sale, I love it so much that it was hard to list for sale! LOL I guess that's just how it is when you love what you do right?
The bag is around 5 3/4 inches square, just the right size to hold a small wallet, cell phone, lipstick and maybe a few other necessities.
I added a floral seam treatment with stem stitch stems and lazy daisy leaves with silk ribbon in the center in straight and ribbon stitches. I used heart beads to form the flowers. I also added little metal bugs around the block
In this corner I uses some lace on a seam with pearls and a little lace butterfly with pistil stitch antennae, a seed pearl body, and running stitch flight path.
