I promised to show you the glasses purse when it was finished and here it is.
Here are the 2 pieces and the lining just before making up
Then the purse waiting to be attached to the frame
And finally the finished purse.
Of course now that I have had a bit of success in making a frame purse I'm on a roll and as I had a small frame found at the car boot I thought I would have a go at making a coin purse.
I raked out some linen but soon realised that sewing on the machine would soon pull it out of shape so decided to stitch this entirely by hand.
As you can see I had to make tiny stitches just like the machine would, also you can see the ribbons from the roses on the front.
The lining is just a piece of cottn and again I stitched by hand.
Completed purse with ribbon roses waiting for frame.
Finished coin purse.
Now onto another glasses case, I have a nice cameo brooch that I am thinking I might incorporate into the next design.
