Climbing Wisteria Vines Purse

silk ribbon embroidered purse
printer friendly image


When you wear this elegant embroidered purse out you will be the envy of all your friends, and they will probably ask you to make one for them!

The fabric is pieced first, in a simple striped fashion of silk, moire, or tapestry. The front and back pieced sections are then embroidered with feather stitch vines and silk ribbon-embroidered lazy daisy leaves. Beads and buttons provide flash and style, probably just like that favorite aunt would have done.

The project that will prepare you for this one is the Garden Brooches. Sewing machine skills will be needed.

Class Specifics:

  • 1 day/ 5 hr.
  • Skill Level: Intermediate
  • Prerequisite: none
  • Supply list available after class time is determined.
