Brown Raven Apron, plain black apron

More Victorian Nonsense Designs.... love that Raven ;)

Seed Bead Bag finished, Victorian Era Reproduction

I improvised this pattern as I went. It's nearly done, just need to add wide satin ribbon for handle. I was thinking lacing it back and forth on that top row of netting would look nice.

This was done with cheap rocaille seed beed from Michaels, ergo all kinds of variety in shapes and sizes! LOL  But that lends to the characteristic of being handcrafted in the design that I am fond of, the irregularity. I prefer to have a more organic feel to my pieces than a perfect machine made look that modern designs have.

This tiny bag took many weeks to complete.
