Here is another purse I made back in high school for my art portfolio. I took an old purse frame, created the fish, and used the frame as the mouth. The scales were very time consuming not only to cut out but to sew on. It also took me a long time to figure out the best way to attach the purse to the frame.





I had some trouble with the lining of the purse, it got kind of baggy inside.


I embroidered around the edges of the fins, the face, and the mouth




I am really happy with how the purse turned out. It was worth all the work!

I second everything everyone else said...great, great job. It really pays off to fuss on the details, doesn't it?

If this is a high school project, I can't wait to see what comes next!
