This is what I worked on during the retreat. As always there’s a few things I should have done differently but I do like the end product. It has a place for everything. A pocket on the outside (can you spot it?) on the bird side. Inside there’s a pocket for checkbooks, cash, cards, eyeglasses, pen, change and my camera even has a place. The dangly on this side has a thrifted metal piece, the label was given to me and the wool circles are decorated with findings. The vintage upholstery material is left over from the last altered purse.
This is the side with the outside pocket (below). The stars are from the Quilt series Just As I Am and the bird is a Sue Spargo bird.
