French style mini pouch

Close up of the handcrafted flowers. These were made from gold satin and gold organdy, they were made by holding the petals over a candle to singe and curl the edges, they are held together by a crystal bead. The small flowers are crafted from satin ribbon and the leaves are made from silk ribbon.
You can see the vintage lace used for the trim at the top. I have added a vintage butterfly pin to compliment the flowers.
A full view, the pouch is aprox. 7" by 5" and is fully lined. It would make a fabulous gift bag, but how about an evening bag to hold just the necessity's.

Felted wool butterfly pincushion

My latest, made from up cycled felted wool. This is my original design, and completely handcrafted by me. The flowers are also made by me, the lavender wired ribbon pansy is one of my favorite flowers to make, the leaves and the yellow flowers are crafted from rayon seam binding, and the tiny lavender roses are made from satin ribbon.
A close up of the butterfly, it is crafted from a double layer of an old felted sweater. I used a lavender embroidery thread to out line the butterfly and hold it together.
You get a full view here, it measures 4 1/2" across and is about 4 1/2" from bottom to the top of the butterfly's wing. The hand dyed velvet strawberry is full of emery to sharpen your needles, it is also hand crafted by me, I used seed beads for the berry seeds and the leaves are velvet. check it out on my ETSY
