This was a cute plain ivory crocheted cord purse. It was too boring and the lining was ugly. I had to save it and make it better. I added six small and one large vintage buttons for starters. Then I stitched on hand dyed variegated ribbon yarn and then embroidery thread. Next came the glass beads. There are beads on the ribbon yarn and then there are beads on bronze wire attached with bronze chain links. There are also bronze flower beads with jewels stitched on either side of the large button. It is all very subtle, but beautiful.

The purse closes with a zipper.

The strap is made from the same ivory cording as the body.

I changed the lining. It is done in a dark eggplant purple cotton linen blend. I included an inner zipper pocket.

Dimensions:
~6.5 " Wide
~7.25" Tall
Strap is ~49 " long for cross body wearing

This is now a one of a kind purse.

Enjoy!
