Rose Garden Handbag

Pink Hankie CQ
Originally uploaded by Kitty And Me.
This is my latest crazquilt project. I started on it yesterday. I love the hankies that have the rayon machine embroidery on them. They make a lovely focal point on crazyquilts.

I find them at flea markets and antique shops for only $1! Yesterday, I found 8 new ones! All with the original tags still on them!

Anyway, this will be a handbag. It's 6 inches wide by 8 inches high and I'm trying to give it a rose theme. The lace to the right is a piece I found yesterday. Yards and yards of it for only $3.00. I handpainted a small piece of it for this project.

More tomorrow....
