Fiona's Brigadoon Purse

silk ribbon embroidery

One of my favorite things to do is turn on an old movie, a classic, such as Brigadoon for instance, with Gene Kelly and Cyd Charisse. The colors of the fabrics that I used in Brigadoon the vest and this purse reminded me of the tartans worn in the movie and my mother's own Scottish heritage.

One of the curved pieced sections of cotton and tapestry fabrics is embellished with silk ribbon embroidery with added seed bead accents. The other section is covered with a vintage metallic lace; embellished with buttons and ribbon flowers and fabric leaves.

Metallic cord is used for the handle and the edge detailing. The tip of the purse has a wonderful vintage metallic tassel.

The pattern that I used here is my Fleurs de France Purse.
