I ordered some hand dyed lace pieces for the purse and while I was waiting for them to arrive I started on the shoulder strap.
Yesterday the lace pieces came and they are gorgeous. I have cut some apart and sewn them down.
These on the front will be connected with embroidered vines and leaves.
This one is on the back upper left.
The one above and the one below are on the back right side and will be connected with vines & leaves.
I have another leaf and a scrolling floral piece I am probably going to cut apart to help fill in blank areas. This purse may not be a crazy quilt but it will definitely have that feel before I'm done with it.
