This was a fun project that I highly recommend. It’s perfect for a bride or opera attendee. The bag is so delicate and lovely. I think if I had it to do all over again, I would use silk thread; truly an heirloom piece. To read about this project and the happy discoveries I made along the way click here –> Venetian Opera Bag
PS: I forgot to mention in the attachment that I also worked a crab stitch across the top opening of the bag. The lining is then sewn just under the crab st. I used a snap closure. Later on, I discovered that the medallion inset makes a wonderful leaf motif.
