It’s always a good weekend when I get some playtime (as opposed to worktime) in my sewing room! And this weekend I finally managed to finish off the lutradur purse that I began working on last week.
I pondered for a couple of days about how to finish it off because the fabric definitely looks rather grungy and worn, particularly after I heated it to make the holes and the paint turned metallic looking.
I could have added some machine lace to soften the edges and make it a little more feminine looking, but instead I embraced the whole grunge theme and added metal instead.
I used bronze colored eyelets and attached a fringe using some small decorative metal discs. I also used eyelets to secure the shoulder chain strap down each side of the purse.
And a silk lining.
This purse definitely makes an eye catching statement don’t you thing?
