Miniature Handbag No: 16

I love this one and I think it is going to be one of my favourites.  This is from Amanda Yeh's second book and the patterns in this book take some thinking about.  You can tell Amanda is a Mathematics teacher as there is so much calculation and logic in her patterns. There is an outer and an inner sheet to this pattern.  The outer layer is like a net - which is the name of the pattern - and worked in plain parchment.  Three of the petals in the blossoms are part of that layer and then other three of the six are done as extras and attached with special fixings and then a gem added..  The inner layer I have worked on coloured parchment - a pattern printed from a Carol Ann's Studio CD.
I was just going to make 12 but now I have reached 16 I might as well continue to 18 as there are 18 arms on the Fotofall to fill.


  1. WOW this is stunning Carol. I can see why it's your favorite. It looks so delicate, and the flowers look beautiful too, with those gems in the centres. Just perfect.

  2. This is beautiful Carol. You are such a talented lady.

  3. WOW Carol, this is gorgeous. So much intricate work, it must have taken an age to complete.
    Another stunning handbag to add to your collection and I echo Jocelyn in saying you are a very talented lady.
