Pamela, that's gorgeous, You are a textile engineer!Your silk embroidery is lovely.
Beautiful. I've never tried ribbon embroidery. Perhaps one day I will try - I like thus colour and design and a kit sounds a good idea.
I know how tricky it can be to attache the metal 'mouth' of the purse to the fabric. Then I bought a Japanese 'mouth' and there were good illustrations that made it very clear. WRITTEN instructions can be so difficult to interpret into pictures. Anyway, you did a great job and the purse is beautiful inside and out. One project off your list!
The purse looks great. Wonderful finish.Greetings, Manuela
the purse is real beauty, what a job you have done. take care Jaana
