Yesterday, I spent the day at a fun workshop where Judith taught us all the pleasures of
sniffing bostik and uhu making frame purses.
The first purse I made is for me and I chose one of my favourite orange prints from my stash. Oh how I love that fabric! Inside is a lovely yellow polka dot from Robert Kaufmann. I'll show you in a mo.
Having got the hang of the first purse and managing not to glue everything in sight, I cut fabrics for my second purse which I hope will be a present this festive season (can't quite bring myself to use the word yet).
Two pretties to show for my day of laughter and fun with some stitchy friends - old and new. It was so nice to have a wee escape of a day and spend it learning something new. Frame purses are something that I have wanted to make for such a long time and now I know how thanks to a smashing Saturday out!
The linings are such lovely bright surprises when you pop open the frame snaps. As well as the Kaufmann polka dot, I used Rain in poppy (from Simply Solids) - it's such a gorgeous shade of red that I took a lot of photos of but couldn't quite manage to get a good representation of it. You'll have to take my word for it.
Now, who else could I make one of these for?
