Bourse

Hi everyone !!! I am so grateful for your visits and your comments. Thank you .. thank you.

As for BJ, this is what I going to finish with this
Stitching Angel. I always wanted to try and make a bourse for myself. From all the tutorial that I study, it wasn't hard to make it. So I decided to make a small bourse just to keep my coin .. as this is what a bourse for.

A little story about this bourse. Bourse in French is for pourch or purse. They call it "bourses" because they became popular when French Au Fil des Reves design called Bourse maison de brodeuse was published.


This is what I've done. Not really satisfied with my first try because the size of the bourse was too small and turn out not in my expectition. Anyway, it's very cute and I can store a lot of coin inside ... *wink. Ha ha ha .. just to alleviate my dissatisfaction. I didn't put a button on the bourse because I think for this bourse is not necessary as I mention earlier that the bourse is too small and it doesn't make any attraction to have it.

Now ... it's up to you to judge it but photo always doesn't show the actual look. It's sometime will look beautiful or rather very ugly but I still love it. Tara ... my first attempt on a bourse.

That bourse looks really great! And you did some patchwork on the backing fabric, nice touch! How small was it afterall? What's the size of your square?

It's about 8" x 8" only. Too small huh ... Will try another one later.
