Original and distinctive! The delicate flowers of Queen Anne's Lace are one of my favourite signs of summer . . . their lacy white heads sit so regally above many other wildflowers as they sway in the gentle breezes.

This little purse has been created using a beautiful piece of McKenna Ryan fabric that shades from an olive green through to paler sage and then into a soft blue/grey. I have chosen to place the lighter areas of the fabric on the flap and back of the purse with the darker area being under the flap. Subtle images of Queen Anne's Lace and other botanicals are printed on the surface and I have continued that theme by free motion stitching more of them in creamy white thread ... and then further embellished some of them with clear seed beads.

The purse also has four flat pleats that run the length of the purse, off-centre and the angled flap dips to the lower corner on the front. This purse is lined with white-on-white cotton that has a tiny flower and it is interlined with cotton quilt batting to give it a bit more structure and dimension to the quilting.

This purse is just the right size to use when you are going somewhere that you don't need to take your whole life-in-a-bag as it will hold your money, cell phone, keys and lipstick without over-burdening you with a large purse. It will look great when you wear it to a barbeque or to the theatre ... it's one of those purses that can go anywhere! The strap is made from the same cotton fabric and it will hang nicely from your shoulder or can be worn across your body ... please note the measurements of the purse and strap as this strap is a little shorter than the strap on most of my purses of this style.

The stats:
Overall purse measurements: 6.4" x 8" (16 x 20cm)
Strap: .6" wide (1.5cm) and 43.5" long (110cm)

This purse is my original design and has been created as one-of-a kind in my home studio that is smoke-free, pet-free and fragrance-free..

Thanks so much for looking! For more of my purses, please see this section of my Etsy shop http://www.etsy.com/shop/KathyKinsella?section_id=5758802.
