It Was A Nice Day For A White Wedding!

Last weekend was Jenny's wedding and Frannie was one of the flower girls. (Jenny from birtyboutique0i0 is my niece and Frannie is her youngest cousin). Here's the purse I made for Jenny's special day.

I made this bead knitting pattern up myself, although there is a purse that looks similar to it in the Somerset Wedding publication. I tried to find that pattern, but it was never available, so I just did my own (the very first bead-knitting pattern I've written - the first of many to come). Very proud of it and the beaded fringe that I strung by hand. It also has a nice satin lining with little rhinestones all around the interior frame edge to hide the stitching. I even attached a tiny diamond ring charm to the top of the purse. Hmmm, I wonder if Jenny ever noticed it. I completed this purse about 3:00 AM the morning of the wedding - nothing like waiting until the last minute. :) Hey, I work best under pressure!

I've got lots of pictures to show you, including the wedding favors and Frannie's flower girl headpiece that I made. Stay tuned.
