Rae's Purse

Yesterday, at class, Rae was working on purse sections. She has two grand-daughters coming to visit, and intends to have them make their purses up with her, from the embroidery she has completed. This is one of them:


The front has really interesting use of gold feather-stitch and beads:


But what really caught my attention was her use of sequins. I am not a great fan of sequins, and I don't usually use them. But can you see them in this picture?


Rae has sewn one green, glittery sequin under each piece of lace. The bead holding it down is on top of the lace, and she still has to catch the lace down with tiny stitches.

It really looks good, and has a "refined" glitter from quite some distance away.
