I have been attending "Bernina Club" at my LQS and learning a lot! They always have a project for us to do for the following month and this is the latest item. It's a cute little purse that will be perfect for Easter gifts for my granddaughters. That means I have to make two MORE.
The next ones will be a little different. I learned that I need to use a darker thread for my decorative stitches if I want them to show up. I kind of like the subtle look though on this one. The #10 foot is fantastic for sewing on the ribbons. I'm really liking that foot a lot. What was such fun though, was the bobbin work. I had never done that before and it was quite easy. I do have an extra bobbin case for this. Experts say you need to dedicate a case just for this work because you have to adjust the tension on the case for the different threads, ribbons, etc. used in the case. On this purse I used the #5 perle cotton thread. I want to try the 4mm silk ribbon on one of the next ones.
This is the other side of the purse. I embroidered a sweet little butterfly on it. I'm loving my Bernina and this was a fun project!
