This weekend has been all about purses. My sister asked me to design a couple of purses for the daughters of her friends that she could give them in place of easter eggs. As both of them love dance class, she wanted this built into the design. The designs are based on descriptions of the girls themselves and the applique started with just the outline shapes.
The designs were then applied to the purse fabrics and the embroidery added the real detail and life to the little ballerinas.
