Little Plum Purse

Each week at Textile Classes I show an inspirational project 
so that there is always something to make and techniques
to try.
This is a small purse, based on a Pride and Prejudice Bag, I saw
in a printed fashion plate illustration.
I break the design down into simple patterns and instructions.
Everyone was excited and there were lots of purses made
 in various materials.
I will show you the results shortly.

Hexagon Pincushion

Eileen made the purple hexagon pincushion and
brought it to class. It was plain with no embroidery on it.
She asked our opinion and we all agreed it need some stitch detail.
It became a real discussion point what embellishment to put on it.
It was decided it needed embroidery and so above you can see the results.
It looked great and won 1st Prize in a local show in the pincushion section.
Well done Eileen.
