Machine Embroidery and Applique Purses

When I was pregnant with my lovely son, something very strange happened: I couldn't touch metal, it gave me a shiver. Well, as you can imagine this is a problem for a jewelry-maker! I decided to continue my creative pursuits with one of my second best media, textiles and embroidery. During that time I made several purses. Most of them had machine applique and were embroidered on top, beads, ribbons. I only have two left from that time, I gave all others away as gifts. ©Copyright 2001 Eni Oken
