Feeling a bit clever...

Loving this new-found structure technique.

(Not too fond of working with beaded, reverse-pintucked silk... but the results would make a bride happy, don't you think?).

I've been working through techniques for varying this one. Making notes, taking photos....


150mm barrel clutch pattern on the way soon... yippee!

You deserve to be feeling clever! They all look terrific. Can't wait to give this pattern a go too! This year's teacher gifts are going to be barrel purses in various sizes. Such a great pattern Nikki!

150cm?! That's some structural support! Heehee.

I love the silk, even if it was a pain to work with. I also adore the wrist strap versions. Fun!

Nikki said...

AH, Melanie - you got to my post before I got to the edits.... we're back to purse-size proportions now.
