My Feather Purse is Done

Well friends, instead of packing and getting our house ready for vacation, I have been sewing.  (Please tell me someone else can relate).  As I mentioned in my last post, I free-formed a pieced feather using my brown and black Umbrella Prints Trimmings packet.  I sewed these onto a leather scrap using my Janome Memory Craft machine and a leather needle with no problems.  I finished the edges of the metal zipper with some more trimmings and sewed it all up with my Juki Industrial Machine.  I didn’t follow any pattern though there are a gazillion similar clutch/purse patterns available on the internet.  I used some Robert Kaufman yarn dyed linen for the lining and a vintage Turkish Tassel for a zipper pull.  Now, off to do some packing!

Thanks for indulging me.


Umbrella Prints: 2014 Umbrella Prints Trimmings Competition.


Looking at other people’s entries, I guess, I was supposed to take out the fabrics and display them more?  The instructions said to take off the plastic and take a pic which I did. Obviously I’m too literal. 🙂
