"But, really, why does anyone create? You feel a... a restlessness inside, a need to make something new, something no one has ever seen before. You want to add to the beauty and the richness of the world with a gift, an offering that is uniquely yours. It's an act of selfishness and generosity, all rolled into one."

A Request

I've always wanted to make a tatted purse-- I keep coming up with new ideas for this-- but there's one little thing holding me back. Given the nature of tatting, it would have to be lined, and that means the dreaded "s-word": sewing. Anything I sew looks like it was done by a 5-year-old, and would not be an impressive background for my tatting. I've looked online to see if anyone is selling plain purses to embellish, but I couldn't find anything.

So, are there any seamstresses out there who could make me a few plain fabric purses that I could add my tatting to? To keep the shipping reasonable, it would be best if you live in the US, but I'll consider offers from anywhere. Leave me a comment, or e-mail me at luthien1 at comcast dot net, and we'll talk about design and price.

Thanks in advance for all offers!

  1. Did you ever find someone to make you some purses? I know that JoAnn's sells some basic ones but I'd offer to make some for you if you don't mind paying shipping from Belgium.
