My friends suggested I create purses to go with the parasols. This is the first one I have tackled. It matches my Burgundy and Iridescent Green Wedding Parasol that I put up in the Etsy store July 2nd. I took leftover trim and cover material to cover a black clutch purse, adding satin rose flowers I had originally bought for the parasol. While it turned out the flowers weren’t needed for the parasol, it was great to find a use for them on this neat little compact purse.
I particularly love the design of this purse because it holds a multitude of things a gal needs that my first Little Black Bag collection couldn’t handle all at once – money, change, credit cards and a full size Android cell phone. To my delight, my Samsung ‘droid fits perfectly in the zippered change pouch. It’s wonderful having it so handy and not buried at the bottom of a bulky purse – especially when I have only a few seconds to find the darn thing to answer those incoming calls!
Right now this is a one-of-a-kind piece. I don’t know that I’ll make another like it unless it’s a special request for a customer. I have too many ideas for other designs, so get this one while you can.
