Melissa Shirley Lantern Purse

These two square needlework designs were just shy of fitting perfectly onto the panels of this Lantern purse. Matching silk dupioni fabric was added to make them large enough to fit the space. The were lined with matching silk dupioni and interlined with a thin plastic template for shaping and batting for a slight amount of padding. The panels were then hand stitched to the purse to form pockets. The Melissa Shirley designs were stitched by Jane Wood as a donation for the ANG Auction in Indian Wells Seminar 2008.
