My creamy lacy confection of a purse (ok, it's probably big enough to haul a baby in) is the final product.
I have had this ticking stripe forever but it was so pretty I couldn't cut into it. This was the perfect project. I think it is a perfect balance for all the lace and the floral lining.
The bottom most layer is a vintage lace fabric. It reminds me of the lace on my 1990 wedding dress.
The second, most prominent layer is an antique french lace from the lace ruffled drapes that I detailed last week. I really love that stuff and still can't believe my great fortune.
The top ruffle is a one inch wide Irish lace.
It is 13" tall, 15" wide, and 5" deep. It holds my current crazy quilting block and various other things that we women must have.
I am planning to make some smaller purses for my etsy store soon, so keep an eye out. In the meantime, please visit the store as I am adding vintage and antique lace to the menu.
