I've been wanting to make this for a long time. Up until now it's been a rendering in my sketch book and I finally whipped it up this week for a new class at Piecemakers. I will be teaching it Aug.29 from 10a-4p. Sign ups will be soon and you can contact them ahead at 714-641-3112. It's called "Bohemian Chic"~An introduction to shisha mirror embroidery. The whole purse is made from scratch and the techniques will include free form quilting, shisha mirror embroidery, tassels and pompoms. Shisha mirrors are small mirrors used in ethnic textiles and accessories. Most examples I have seen are from India, Africa and Pakistan. Let me know what you think!
