Embroidery Project – Small Snail Purse/Bag with Vintage Snail Embroidery, Finishing, Part 18

We last ended matching up our handles after turning the entire purse right-side-out.

We left the last 1/4 in. not UNsewn and those are the free ends that we are now going to join. Here we match the edges. And sew them together with our 1/4 in. seam. Again, I match the foot so that the material will run along the edge of the sewing foot.

(Another view)

Once that seam is sewn, the outer seam can be sewn. Since we used felt for this project, there really is no need to turn the fabric under to conceal the raw edges. For this project, we will overlap the felt edges and topstitch the seam closed.

Here is the first topstitching.

And…here with two rows of topstitching.

The reverse handle inside shows the bobbin side of the topstitching.

Speaking of bobbins…here is the INSIDE of that bobbin box that keeps sneaking into my photos!

The complete purse will be uploaded as a gallery of photos in a separate post.

Coming…next!

Your life needs fun. Go ahead, have some fun!
