Sampler Purse - Beads and Ribbons

I could have made do with the things I had, but I decided to just take a look at Kanariya.  They had tons of trim, but only a few in the 3 mm (1/8”) width.  This is what I came home with.

Are you wondering what I’m doing with these skinny ribbons?  Take a look. The trim covers the blue stripes between the white stitched stripes.

Next, I will decide on a lining fabric and work on putting it together.  Here I’ve just folded up the piece, but it will look something like this when it’s done. 


  1. My goodness, your needle must be smoking. You are such a fast worker. I have been deliberating over this for some years now since I first saw the magazine. Hopefully this weekend I am going to make a start.

  2. This is SO. Amazing and beautiful ! I m in awe....

    Kind regards from Belgium,

  3. My thoughts went along the lines of Margaret's - your needle must be burning holes in the trims with the speed you are working. Fantastic result. It will be a stylish bag!
