What you may ask is an MIU? It stands for Make It Up (as you go along!)
There was STILL some remnant of this Cerise linen fabric so I had to make just one more item…. a padded wristlet purse seemed like a good idea.
Using the largest piece of remnant fabric for the outer shell plus some strips that had been parallel to the selvedge, I designed and stitched the purse as I went along.
Recently I had bought some sets of hardware and now seemed like a good opportunity to try them out. I referred to a You tube video for instructions on how to put together the wrist strap but it really was intuitive.
The fabric gathered together nicely for the frills and I was able to use yet another zip from my father’s stash for the closure. A small piece of wadding and a scrap of the lining as used for lining the jacket were all the materials required.
The finished purse measures approximately 8 inches x 6¾ inches. Having completed the make, I will note the construction for future iterations.
Now – there will be no more postings about Cerise linen-look as that is the final make from the original fabric purchase!
