Blue Beaded Purse

This purse is a patchwork, hand embroidered, hand beaded purse with a beaded handle that has been with me since I started making purses. Perhaps because it was made right after my favorite purse(which you can see on the side in all it's glory) which was the first embroidered purse I made. It's a bit on the extravagant side for a denim purse and it's had a lot of lookers but no buyers. I'm on the verge of keeping it for myself but as a stay at home artist I don't know where the heck I'll use it. It was a lot of fun to make and really makes me happy when I look at it. But I'm not really a bead gal(but who knows I change by the day now). Perhaps when I finally take the plunge(or my husband takes the time to take it with me) and put my work on Etsy or Ebay I'll try to sell it there. I just know that there is someone else there that screams for a hand embroidered beaded denim purse with a bead handle. I know it. If you happen to be that person please don't be afraid to email me and it can be yours.

Tonight I am teaching my first crochet class at Michaels so I have to run but have a great day and keep stitching and sorry for the sales pitch!

Wow, this is beautiful. Do you have an Etsy store or something where people can buy your stuff?

I am completely null when it comes to business and art but I do know that I love your work, especially that one...Will you tell us about your Michael's experience? Good luck!

Thank you for your wonderful comments. At the moment my blog is it. I am waiting for my hubby to give me the go ahead(and the credit card information) to start an Etsy or Ebay account. Since he's an accountant he's a little skittish.

But if anyone is interested just email me and I'll give you the info you request.

It's a beauty! Somewhere, the right person is waiting to discover and buy it! Don't apologize for trying to sell your art. We artists have to make some money, too!

Thanks for commenting on my blog post.

Good luck with the teaching, and stay inspired!! :)
