And for the first time in my life

I won something....
A purse contest at the Yahoogroup Msatminidolls , big group ; the list owner is Dana Burton, she is assisted by a very dedicated bunch of gals, like Lesa, Marilyn P and lots of others. If anyone wants to learn whatever about dressing/ making/wigging dolls , there is where you need to be !

This specific purse was stitched to fit a clasp made by Jens Torp from the UK , who is a great silversmith and a very nice man , too. The design was by Nicola Mascall; I bagged it from one of the pillows I had stitched before.
It was stitched on 64 hpi silk gauze with YLI100, a very thin silk thread.
The ruler you see does centimeters , not inches :-). The width is 13 mm.


  1. O Elly wat mooi! Gefeliciteerd met je prijs, wat heb je gewonnen?
    Dit juweeltje van Jens staat ook nog steeds op mijn verlanglijstje.

  2. Dank je wel Josje !
    Geen idee wat ik gewonnen heb eerlijk gezegd...
    Ik was helemaal gevallen voor de beugel, maar het heeft zowat anderhalf jaar geduurd voor ik er aan durfde beginnen.ik vráág je !

  3. It's such a lovely purse, Elly. You and Jens make a nice purse making team! Again, congratulations!
