Hi guys!
I made a bunch of the purses.
They are just a simple rectangle, closed with a zipper and fully lined.
I also added a cord.
I made the cross stitch motif by drawing a grid on the back of the faux leather and then applied the pattern.
The cross stitch is made with thin, acrylic wool.
Here are the results









and here is a compilation of the linings



I am totally unsatisfied with the "ending" of the zipper. Have to work on that.
How do you like them?

I really like that the designs are off-center. I think the owl is my favorite.
