Oops, been away that long????



Good morning people!
I hope this post finds you all well!
Want to thank everbody for their wonderfull and supportive comments, they mean soooo much to me!
I am sorry, just now found out that I did not post for a while...so much for wanting to post every day in this year..lol.
Today I am posting something that I wanted to make for a while now and finally did it. Its a clutch purse that is crazy quilted and hand beaded. Added some hand embroidery too.
Its is made out of recycled silk blouses and the inside is silk too. The black fabric is recycled velvet. Don't you just love the feel of silk and velvet????
I think it would make a great evening purse...what do you think?? I had to delete the background of the first two pictures so it would not be to distracting. The third pic I just left as is, so you will see what I mean. Looking at the picture I see that some little adjustments need to be made, will fix that and re post the picture. ( you see what I see here?LOL)


The velvet I embossed myself because I thought it looked to "flat". This is the first time I made something like this and I had so much fun making it that I am thinking of making another one in different colors. I will put it up for "adoption" in my Etsy store, I think. Then again...I would really like it for myself...lol.
This is it for today, have a busy agenda today, so I will talk to you guys soon.....sooner then last time..promise.....
Everybody have a great wonderfull day...and go and create!
Love you guys!!!!
Andrea.

This is a gorgeous bag. Zoomed in for a close up and the beading and hand embroidery are stunning. I don't blame you for wanting to keep it.

I think thats very elegant Andrea, and I agree with you ...I love silk and velvet too. I bet it feels gorgeous. Go on - keep it for yourself.
