Coin Purse & Old lace

Today I used the piece of old lace and silk I punched to make a small coin purse. It's very antique looking and I like it!!! The pattern was made by Anne Pyle and Ellen who do digitizing. It was a breeze to make. You can see all the steps in these pictures.

Old Lace & Chiffons

Yesterday I played with my Xpressions machine. I took old ecru and tea dyed lace and punched them into a piece of wool felt. I also used tea dyed silks and chiffons. I think I will take this piece and make it into a small purse.

I then took a piece of pansy print chiffon and punched it into green velvet (heavy velvet & broke two needles) I like the out come but not the broken needles. I also punched it into a piece of white wool felt along with some coral puckered chiffon. The coral was one of those weird puckered stretchy shirts I got at the Goodwill store and cut it up for punching. Doesn't work as well as I had thought it would.

I'm in a box swap on one of the Yahoo lists. I've made one box using my Xpressions machine. Now I need to get busy and get the other three done.
