Latest Reverse-a-Purse

Here's my lateset Reverse-A-Purse. Just finished yesterday. The feather print is a piece of vintage silk I got from my favorite ebay seller Pilgrimhands. On the eye of the feather, I did a circle of thread painting, & placed a Shisha mirror. The purple triangle is a bit of cotton Baitk, but the body on this side is a crinkled black silk, making it an elegant little evening bag.
The reverse is my hand dyed cotton, with a cotton varigated thread, & a lovely iridescent glass button, that this photo doesn't do justice to. This side is good for casual wear.
