Embroidered Purses

Haute Handbags www.laurabraydesigns.comI'm pleased to announce that I have an article in the latest issue of Haute Handbags. I created a clutch purse from a vintage, embroidered dresser scarf.  Pick up an issue when you get a chance.

And speaking of bags and purses….remember my bird embroidery

Bird Coin Purse www.laurabraydesigns.comWell I made a little coin purse with the piece.  I've always wanted to make a clasp coin purse but I have always felt a bit intimidated by the project.  Last week, I took a deep breath and did it.  And it wasn't half as hard as I thought it was going to be.  Now I'm hooked.  Next on my list is to attempt to sew a zipper onto a bag.  Wish me luck and be sure to leave any tips for sewing zippers in the comments.  I'm going to need all the help I can get.

    I signed up to take a duffle bag class at a local quilt supply store on March 14. Unfortunately, on March 13 I received a call they had to move the class to March 28. By the time March 28 rolled around I was too busy with Easter preparations to take the class. I'll let you know if it comes up again and perhaps you could join me in the class. If not, I'll share what I learn with you. Beautiful "clutch" and I love your bird embroidered coin purse. Keep up the good work!
