I made this purse long time ago as a part of a neovictorian outfit.
(You can see the whole outfit here-->http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=87194.0)



Now I replaced the satin ribbon with wider velvet ribbon(I like it much better), but I only have a photo before the replacement.
It has a quilted fabric layer fused to outer fabric to give more weight and stiffness to hold the shape of the bag (I just fused it back to the outer fabric to make it stiff with fusibleweb.) and separate lining. The lady image on the bag is a painting by Harrison Fisher. I scanned the image from his anthology, printed on an inkjet printer transfer paper, and iron-transferred it on white cotton voile.
I hand-dyed the fabric for piping & lace to match the color with main fabric.

I love it! There's something about the combination of quilted fabric and a metal purse frame which is really special.
