Stumpwork embroidery, hand-painted, felted, and crochet handbag purse called Jester.
People ask me alot: "how long did it take you to make that?" In this project. A LONG TIME. I don't like to track my hours because it's more about the piece being finished correctly. Besides if I did then the price would be much higher. ;-)
The structure of this handbag is shoe material. It is not a solid structure meaning it can be mushed but will pop back into shape. I hand painted a piece of cotton fabric and then embroidered fibers to it for interest on the outside of the purse.
The Jester is made in a process known as stumpwork embroidery. Yes, he is 3-D.
The sides of the handbag are felt with embroidery.
The strap is crochet from a cotton ribbon yarn. The length of the strap can be adjusted to shoulder at 9" to 15.5". Holding the chain and strap to the handbag is more crochet.
The dimensions of the handbag are 12" by 9.5".
Inside it is lined with the same painted fabric.
Closes via a zipper.
