Lace purses and a winner

Today is the 28th. Sorta crept up on me. Still, it’s the 28th, and the day to announce the winner of the blog giveaway.
This is so fun! This little lovely will go to a new home today!

I also wanted to tell you about the new lace purses I’ve been making. Now these could be a serious addiction…
This one has already found a new home, and just went on a cruise. There's something missing in that picture: oh, yeah, it's me, I"m not on that cruise. :-((

This one is a small canvas bag with a zipper. I have used doilies and two pieces of very old from my collection. I’ve added a pearl necklace for that little something extra:
This next one is larger, built on a base of cream man-made leather. You can see the detail of colored ribbon binding, with a small chain and a key.

It has a large flap, and you can see the laces under the flap, with a few vintage buttons.
This next one is a large hobo bag, or carpet bag, which I made from scratch, using upholstery fabric and trims.
This is a little drawstring bag, made with hand painted doilies and a fabric flower. The back is decorated with doilies, vintage laces and a small earring.
The little white one is the very first one I ever made. I was really happy with how it came out, obviously, so I made a few more…

But hey, enough talk about purses. Let’s talk about a winner. IMG_1010 resize
