deco art purses

I have found these purses on line and fell in love with them…… they are all retro and glam, some were going for $60.  And I thought wow , I should try my hand at this , It looks fun, plus every girl needs more purses…. I bought a bunch of purse bags a few years back, for a dollar each. they were ugly ,but I knew I just needed them. LOL..   So alterations or upcycling is what its called now a days……Credit goes out to the artist for putting these in my head. She sells hers on Estys check her out..http://www.dharmatrading.com/featured/561/?utm_source=2012_11_01-fa_1&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=newsletter?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=web&utm_campaign=facebook

Now This is the first , and needs more to it , but thought I’d share so far..  I get so carried away, LOL… hers some of my photos …. I used satin, for the purse itself.

This is the start of my pattern , I don”t measure , I just cut look draw add cut ect. Tip for doing eyes nose and mouth is draw it , trace it on vellum in pencil then pencil side down on fabric and scribble on back and  you have a pencil transfer .

BEFORE ….fruity…
AFTER  tearing out the outer skin..

operation completed now for the shinny pretty SATIN………… ohhhh, WHITE………PRETTY…..
