I hope all is well with you, dear reader.
I have received a wonderful response to the embroidered Berets and thoroughly enjoy embellishing them.
I came across a piece of beautiful, luxurious black velvet fabric and thought it a good idea to make scarves...all went well until I made the scarf up (backing with the same velvet). Just a simple long rectangle, easy!!! I'm afraid to say that particular skill alluded me. The velvet has a mind of it's own and is quite uncooperative, to form nice points and keep to a straight line when turned right side out.
Shan't be going down that road again.
Over the years, I have made many, many purses and so, after a long break, I thought it would be great to start making them again and embroidering in the same way as the Berets.
I used a lovely wool felt for this one and have successfully made the purse up without wanting to throw it down the garden, in temper!
This particular purse was a commission...I and the purchaser are very happy with how it turned out. Yay!
That's me for today ...
thank you for stopping by X
I have one of your wonderful purses Viv and in it... so many lovely badges you have made for me over the years. On my new year head I sport a glorious beret festooned with poppies. As my grandchildren call me Poppy what better? Thank you for all of your wonderful work, who wiuldn’t walk tall wearing it?
The little blackbird popping out of the flowers is just darling!
These are amazing . . . I wear berets all the time, you have inspired me :)
Hola. Tus trabajos me parecen maravillosos. Gracias por mostrarlo. Saludos
Hi Viv, I bought one of those little purses from you ages and ages ago and I still use it. Glad to see them back and I love the wool/felt one pictured here.
Love Love Love the blackbird!
Try backing the velvet with soft slipper satin or silk. Best Wishes, Bev
