Haute Handbag Submission

I sent this package off just in the nick of time. Somerset Studio Magizine was looking for handbag submissions for their special publication "Haute Handbag". The deadline for it to arrive is November 15th. My package should get there by Friday. Nothing like being last minute! Why is it that I always wait to the last minute. I think most creative people are like this. Always trying to fit one more thing into the day. I always like to add some type of embellishment to the outside of the package. A silk flower petal with a rhinestone gem was the finishing touch for this delivery. The postal workers always seem to enjoy when I bring my packages in. They are always curious as to what is in the box ...
I had started this purse last month for the "Mind Wide Open Contest". Once again that was last minute, and I wasn't happy with the purse handles and the embellsihments on the front of the handbag. Well with a few little changes, it was much more to my liking. I was happy with the finished product. Here is a photo showing some of the detail. I printed out the photo on some muslin and then attached it to the silk fabric used for the purse. I used a few types of yarn and made the trim that was used for the trim around the sides of the purse. I added handmade ribbon roses, and aroung the edge of the photo, I couched with the yarn. I love the vintage heart that hangs from the ribbon. The beaded trim was left over from a drapery treatement that I just recently completed. It was the perfect touch for this one of a kind "Creation From My Heart". "It is truly a creation when it come from the heart"
