Desperate Times Call For Desperate Measures

Okay, so this wasn’t exactly desperate times but when you are the Mother of the Bride and you can’t find a purse that goes with your dress, what do you do?  Make one.  The fabric is silk dupioni with silk ribbon embroidery and beads.  This was the first time I had made a purse with a frame and this was a sew-in frame with holes.  I followed the instructions on  for how to make a pattern for a frame.  However, I couldn’t find any instructions on the web for sewing it on.  I tried just using thread but didn’t like the thread showing, so I strung 3 beads on my thread as I sewed it in.  Here’s the result.  Click on an image to enlarge it.
