Spent the weekend making a little silk purse. It measures 7X6 inches.  A few years ago when I use to get out! I found several men’s silk ties that I really liked. It is a little harder finding the silk ones. Anyway; brought them home, took them apart, washed the silk by hand , dried it and packed it in a baggie! This weekend I took the one that had purple and green plums printed on it. And decided to make a purse or little bag. Used a piece of plaid silk to add to the mix. I’ve lined it with a faux suede in beige. Now for the embellishment. This is as far as I’ve gone. Just not sure what else to do.  I love the fabric! Guess I will have to keep looking for finds to finish.
