I had already used a fine net tulle which had beads stitched on and so after the purse was completed, I added more antique beads.
A large antique press stud has been used for closure.
1. The purse needs to be double, rather like a rectangular tube which is then folded over so that the change doesn't fall out.
2. For quicker felting, the silk needs to be breathable and one should be able to see through it.
If you click on the picture it will take you to my Flickr page where you will be able to see a close-up of this work.
