Midwest Fiber and Folk Art Fair

    This year will mark my third year attending the Midwest Fiber and Folk Art Fair. This year I am finally entering the Vintage Handbag exhibit. The idea was to use a vintage handbag pattern from the 1920's as a starting point and then interpret your own design and make it. The must haves were: a drawstring closure, a top and bottom tassel and "netting".
    For those of you who aren't going to be in the area, here's a sneak peak of my design. I used Faberge's "Rose Trellis" egg as my starting point, but decided to use violets in place of the roses (since violets are Illinois' state flower).
