Forget about that I am talking purses and perses
Broderie Perse Wikipedia says (French for "Persian Embroidery") is a style of applique embroidery which uses printed elements to create a scene on the background fabric.
Broderie Perse can be done with any printed fabric on any ground, but it originally was worked with Chintz type fabrics which were cut out and invisibly applied onto the ground fabric. The typical intention was to create a scene from the motifs, but the decoration could also be random.
My bird now has a candy cane embedded in its wing. sigh.
...it's easy, fun and can be quick, that is except if you insist on cutting away most of any offending background fabric then it is not quick, but it is still fun. My interpretation of random...
I have done somewhat less random too. A while back.
I am trying to fill the centre of the orange peel to overflowing abundance.
A purse on the other hand as we girls all know, is a small bag that may refer to:
- Coin purse, in British English, currency notes, credit card, and other ID cards
- Handbag, in American English, as a modern article of fashion
- and various other definitions.
At the Farmers Markets weekend before last I spied this most comely of purses. It stuck to my fingers. It's my new favourite thing. Lerve it.
This past Saturday was Stitcherhood Saturday. My lame name. The girls came to mine for lunch and sewing and typical me I got caught up in coffee making, lunch preparing, and general faffing about and didn't take too many photos.
Here is my paltry photo essay.
