Textured Purse

One of my contemporary pieces I made into a small zippered purse.
I just love the feel of it. :)

On a Calico base I laid out square cut scraps of silk,
machine basted, just to hold,
then covered with a fine tulle.
Some scrappy loose weave hessian was placed haphazardly,
and then I embroidered in random rows of running stitch.
Finished off with large circles in buttonhole stitch, with button centres.
then the whole piece was
made into a zippered purse.
I use it to take my sewing tools to Stitching Group.
