I finally got myself together yesterday to finish the Crazy Patchwork Cameo Glasses Purse.
I'm really enjoying making these, they are small enough for me to not get fed up half way through and serve a purpose.
As I mentioned before, I have several cameo brooches in my stash and I think this one looks quite victorian on this purse.
Two tiny birds sit on the top of the clasp.
4 Tiny ribbon roses some tear drop pearls and a bit of feather stitching.
I gathered some lace and stitched it around the cameo, the cameo is stitched on through the edge with clear nylon thread so that it doesn't show.
A little gold victorian boot, again sewn in place with clear thread, gold mesh over salmon coloured satin and some more beading.
The back side is embellished with wheatear stitch only, I really love this stitch easy but very decorative.
Inside is lined with a maroon sprigged cotton.
Now the problem is that I don't want to use it in case it gets messy, lol
