Requirements:
– Lace (ecru and black)
– Iron-on violene (white and black)
– Tacky Glue Quick Dry/ Jewel cement
– Clothes pegs
– Side cutting pliers
– Tweezers
– Needle and white sewing garn

Hand Purse
Required ornaments: FL 200 and little strass stones or beads

Iron a small piece of iron-on violene against a piece of lace of ± 4,5 by 1,8 cm.
Pay attention to the pattern of the lace:
in this case for instance the edges of the  lace are left open.
Fold the short side of the lace ± 5 mm to the inside and glue it with Tacky Glue
(hold it in place with a clothes peg for a while).
Now fold the lace in 3 pieces in a way that makes the purse ± 1,5 cm high and
makes an overlap on the front large enough to fit ornament FL 200.
Glue the purse and let it dry with clothes pegs.
Glue ornament FL 200 along the top side of the purse and glue little stones or
beads into the three rings of the ornament with jewel cement.

Evening purse with handle
Required ornaments: OR 097 and OR 055

Iron a small piece of iron-on violene against a piece of lace of ± 4,5 by 2,2 cm.
In the example 2 pieces of lace have been glued to each other in order to get
the desired width; pay attention to the patterns of the lace.
Fold and glue the purse as described in the preceding example.
Make the size of the overlap as you like it.
Cut off the little ring of ornament OR 097 and file the edge if necessary.
Sew the little hooks of OR 097 to the backside of the purse and glue the little heart
(OR 055) to the front of the purse (see photo above).

Ecru Purse with chain
Required ornaments: OR 110, DV 765, DV 771 and little pearls or beads

Iron a small piece of iron-on violene against a piece of lace of ± 4,5 by 2,2 cm.
In the example 2 pieces of lace have been glued to each other in order to get
the desired heigth. Fold the lace in 3 pieces in a way that makes the purse ± 2 cm wide
and makes an overlap of the lace on the backside.
Glue the purse and let it dry with clothes pegs.
Attach a piece of chain of ±
4,5 cm (DV765) to the ornament OR 110 using
the jumprings (DV 771). Glue the ornament to the purse in such a way that
the two rings of OR 110 stick out above the top of the purse (see photo).
Embellish the third ring of OR 110 and the bottom of the purse with little pearls or beads.

Black purse with chain
Required ornaments: OR 109, DV 765, DV 771 and little strass stones or beads.

Make this purse in the same way as the preceding purse.
In the example I have used black lace and black violene but black violene against
ecru lace also gives a nice result (see photo below).

Of course you can vary the lace, the length of the chain, the embellishments
and the ornaments.
The following ornaments are also suitable for making purses and bags:
FL 216, FL 210
(for instance in the length against the topside of a bag),
FL 212 and OR 103 (for instance folded around a purse), OR 070, OR 098,
OR 001, OR 020, OR 040, OR 064, OR 066, OR 106 and…

Have fun!
