Purses - #4

This one is my favorite ... so far.

Nellie's Purse #4
I looooove those polka dotted Guinea Hen feathers that Alicia brought.  They're sewn onto a strip of fabric.  I cannot imagine them adorning clothing ... or even a functioning purse.  The cat's face is a lone earring that was part of my favorite pair once upon a time.

Alicia loves paisley.  Quilting it is beyond her sewing skill, so I got to do that part.  The flap is velvet and it's decorated with a silk knotted cuff link.

love, love, love these! you can have as many purses as you want!! and a great way to use embellishments. will they be put together as a quilt? reminds me of your shoe quilt.

That's my favorite too. I've been halfheartedly shopping for some kind of sack to haul things in and you have made it ever so much more difficult!

Love those guinea hen feathers. This whole project is so imaginative -- what a creative idea! Also love the paisley quilting.
