I have been working on a new wristlet. This is my prototype. It is constructed from purple decorator/upholstery fabrics. It is fully lined with 100% cotton fabric. The tricky part was the wrist strap, but I think I managed to get it just right. I embellished the front with a large purple flower that I made from wired ribbon, buttons, and flower centers. It was a bit time consuming to hand-stitch the flower to the front of the wristlet, but I did not want to glue it on.
I hope you all have a great week.
I have a great many ribbon ribbon books, but none that I love as much as this one. It is titled Passion For Ribbonry by Camela Nitschke. It is an old book, so I don't even know if it's still sold at book stores, but if you see one at a garage sale, do not pass it up.
On a side note, I ended up making another potpourri sachet for my closet. I cross stitched this chair a long time ago and it was just sitting around in my sewing room until today.
