New & Improved Altered Purse

OK - I just can't leave well enough alone..........the Velcro closure started to bug me and the sunglasses just weren't quite there (flat and non-dimensional)...........the improvements made:
- Made arms for the sunglasses to slip through the front flap - got rid of the embroidery thread - yuk - hated that!
- Made the flap for the Black version of this purse.
- Added personalization: initials.

Here's a better view of the glasses: I freehand drew the arms for the glasses so there is no template. The Red pair has red gemstones (of course) and the initials: guess for who? Now I'm happy with this project and can move on...........finally!

Additional supplies for improvement:
  • Stamps: Lovely Letters
  • CS: nothing additional
  • Ink: nothing additional
  • Additional accys: Scallop Circle Punch, 1-1/4" Circle Punch, 1-3/8" Punch, Crop-o-dile, large silver eyelets (non SU), Red Gemstones (non SU)

Thanks for your patience.....................xoxo

Yes, please, Patti! Move to AZ so you can be MY Love the purse. Here's a tip for you for your eyeglasses...use a VersamarkER and clear EP on the lenses and you'll create a more realistic 'glass'.
