A little silk purse
With so many patterns out there, I chose this one the sewing chick to loosely follow, and it's free.
I have a drawer of silk fabrics so I decided to use four of those, and piece them with free form curves.
I did not take photos as I worked, so sorry, but if you like I will try to do a video tutorial on how I do them.
Some of it is tie fabric, like the lining here. I covered the raw edges with brown silk ribbon.
The zipper was so easy to put in.
I think they add a lot of character and beauty to a finished item.
I hated to let it go!
