Embroidery Project – Small Snail Purse/Bag with Vintage Snail Embroidery, Gallery, Final

I added a plexi-glass bottom to the purse. [I cut it out on the bandsaw ;)] It keep the bottom firm and all my little ‘junk’ won’t sag into oblivion.

Here is the Gallery for the completed Snail Purse/Bag! Enjoy!

Long handle under short handle…

Doesn’t that little space there on the handle really need a decorative button?! <evil grin>

I’ve got the wallet designed. It’s the 7th “Day of Week” Snail…Shop Day. 😉

Thanks for being a fan!

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

    This is precious, Alicia! Wow!
    How big is it, exactly? I dont remember the dimensions. I think it may be a little ambitious for MY abilities, but you know what? you inspire me to TRY making some sort of bag using hand embroidered panels. Someone more experienced and talented could possibly make a baby bag in this style, maybe using baby motifs.
    I mean, so many ideas are possible …

  4. It looks great. Really nice job, thanks for sharing how you put this together!

  6. It turned out so cute and all the fabrics look great together! You sure put a lot of hard work into this tutorial…great job!

  7. I have really enjoyed watching this series progress, and I want to be sure my readers don’t miss it. I’ve scheduled a link to this post to go live on my blog tomorrow afternoon (Central USA time). Thank you so much for charting this whole project for us in a comprehensive but fun way.

  9. Denise,
    Wow! Am I ever flattered.
    Thank you so much for visiting and leaving your comment. I am most happy that you find the Snail Purse worthy of your mention.
    You, and everyone, are most welcome.
    I really do hope that creative people out there will be inspired to give projects like this a try.
    Thanks for the compliments and thanks for sharing my posts through your blog!

  10. Hi Vianna,
    I posted another photo of the purse with the wallet in the wallet post. The purse is 5.5″ in diameter and I can stick my hand into the bag up to my elbow or so. It’s little, but can hold a lot!
    The project isn’t THAT big…as far as the sewing goes anyway. You could embroider one item and applique it on…or do it directly on the fabric.
    I hope you do try. (And share photos of course!)

  13. Tracey,
    Thank you so much for visiting and commenting. I’m so glad that you have your crayon tutorial online at your Giggleface Studio blog. If it wasn’t for you, I wouldn’t have even tried this tinting idea. And look at what you’ve started!
    (I love the color pencil work you’ve done too!)
