I'm loving making all these flowers and ruffles... the only problem is they look the best done with silk and velvets. So then they are more expensive. I always try to keep my purses affordable, by recycling fabric or hand dyeing laces and velvets, But these just take a lot of time. Especially when I have to hand sew on rhinestones and pearls. I never use glue! But I do like the look of the shabby roses. If you love these let me know because I won't be making a ton. I just have so many other projects that need to get done.
And it's been really cool to meet so many of you at shows! People show up wearing purses I made a long time ago and it's like seeing an old friend.
