Crazy Quilt Purse


This is another side of the small crazy-quilt purse. I used several pieces of silk doupioni from the RibbonSmyth Doupioni Silk Pack. Simple seam treatments using Buttonhole Silk Twist or 4mm silk ribbon, stitched with a Feather Stitch or a Herringbone Stitch, quickly cover the seams. I used torn pieces of lace and appliqued them onto the silk pieces. The torn pieces were the focal for adding small Mother of Pearl Disks, 4mm silk ribbon stitches,and finished with bead assortments. I used a Scalamandre curtain tie-back for the cording for the draw-string closure.

I have stayed up entirely too late going through your blog (all the way to the beginning). You certainly have set the bar for these techniques. Your work is amazing, thank you so much for sharing your knowledge. I'm just learning silk ribbon embroidery and have had great fun at you e-shop. I have a bad case of ribbon envy! and lace envy, and charm envy,and......
