|You can see the tutorial for this purse here.|
My very talented and beautiful cousin, Jennifer, is going to be married in September! (squeal! I LOVE weddings!) Now, Jenn is a very skilled jewelry designer and is making all the jewelry for the bridal party, but she asked me to make her bridesmaids and flower girls some little handbags. YES!!! I have always wanted to do this! What should I make? What size? Shape? Fabric? So many possibilities! I have a board all set up for it on pinterest.
After lots of looking, I have decided to use metal purse frames with the balls on top that you twist and untwist to open and close. (They must have a special name, but I don't know it yet. . . ) Anyway, Jenn has chosen a light minty green paired with black and silver for her wedding colors. (Squeal again! Green is my absolute fave!!!!)
It's an evening wedding so I am thinking I can go a little darker and sexier, but still keep it classic and tasteful. So, I settled on a silver velvet. What do you think? Will it work? Would you like a silver velvet purse with a metal frame? Just in case you would like one for your very own, I made a great big easy-to-follow-tutorial that you can find right here!
What I came up with is a bell-shaped purse with a flat bottom. It is sleek and unfussy. It is just crying out to be decorated and embellished with fabric flowers or vintage broaches. The tutorial I created allows you to modify your purse to meet your specific aesthetic and space needs. I do hope you'll try it and tell me how it turned out.
