Dandelion Embroidery

I am making my friend Emily a purse! Full disclosure - I started this purse two years ago... opps. Another one of my scary "I don't know how to finish this" projects. I bought the handle online and designed a purse shape to fit it. Then I sketched out an idea for the embroidery. They are dandelions with their petals blowing in the wind! 

Cute lining - slightly wonkily attached.

I lined the inside with leftover quilting cotton from a quilt my sister made years ago. I love the bright-light blue with the yellow and navy.

Now I just need to add a handle and send it off. I will post a picture of the finished piece!


  1. It is very cute! I can't wait to see it finished with the handle.

  2. Wow cute! My mom just gave me book on embroidery. I can't wait to learn more of this craft.

  3. Thanks! I love embroidery on clothes and accessories - I really need to try it more.
