I made this gorgeous purse from a pattern in the Country Bumpkin publication Inspirations. I used my own colours of hand dyed threads for the background swirl and branches, and then added silkribbon rather than bullion roses and love the effect it gave. I lined the purse with linen in embossed linen, and made the purse so that it is now reversible. I have since mailed this purse to my cyber sister " Carolyn " in Oregon and she said the ladies at church just love it. I truly enjoyed making this purse and highly recommend mixing thread medias.
