Monogrammed Purse with Bamboo Handles

Purse This unusual project, utilizing our Monogram Sets, is a monogrammed purse with bamboo handles. It has a breezy 1940s feel - for formal or casual use.

This project features a letter and circular border from our Asian Monogram Set 1. We created a decorative border by copying the same monogram 9 times. One of the designs is sewn in a contrasting color, as an accent..

Thanks to Susan Schrempf, a recognized embellishment expert, for creating this project. Susan is the author of Simple Ribbon Artistry by Machine (Victorian Venture) and contributes regularly to sewing publications. She can be contacted at
