|Golden Gala Evening Purse Front and Back Panels|
September 21, 2018--While at the ANG 2018 Seminar in Washington, DC last month, I took a class by Michele Roberts called Golden Gala Evening Purse. It consists of 2 panels (a front and a back), backed with a beautiful fabric and exposed ribbons. Both panels are inserted into a clear acrylic purse form that has golden hinges and a long detachable strap.
I learned the ribbons are placed on the back of each panel so the they can easily be pulled out of the acrylic form. Without the ribbon "handles", damage could be done to the needlepoint when pulling it out. A very good idea!
Below is a picture of the stitched purse front. As usual, the photograph doesn't show the vibrancy and beauty of the threads.
