palmetto bug purse tute!! that is the best thing EVER, oh mercy.

While I've never made the pattern, this purse somewhat resembles the Cicada pouch from the book Omiyage by Kumiko Sudo.  But I think the one ptarmic wumpus made looks nicer.

I had to look up Palmetto bugs, since I've never heard of them before.  And after learning that they are basically very large flying cockroaches, I think it does look more like a cicada...either way, I love it.

ptarmic wumpus: did you do the embroidery on the wings yourself, or did the fabric come like that?  It's gorgeous.

Maybe with certain choices of colors/fabrics, it would look more like a palmetto bug - it does look a lot like a cicada as is. I always thought that palmetto bugs were the extra large tropical/Floridian roaches, the ones the size of dinner plates that fly Shocked   I did the embroidery - I had taken one of the red leaves with me to work on when I went to a wedding in Montana, and I forgot it there after I finished it and had to make another one when I got back  Roll Eyes

WOW! Ptarmic Wumpus, that's fantabulous! I'm glad you're not my partner, though, I'd feel guilty for not spending as many hours as you did.

Hey Ptarmic Wumpus, you helped create them--the coasters and Mr. Rock are made primarily of the sweaters you traded

Her dirty paws and furry coat,
She ran down the forest slope.
The forest of talking trees,
They used to sing about the birds and the bees.
The bees had declared a war,
The sky wasn't big enough for them all.
