Reverse Applique “C” Purse :: Birthday Gifts for Cassie

Sophie’s party is now over and done, went well, have some fun things to post about. But first, I’ll finish up Cassie’s gifts. Along with the stenciled horse shirt, she received a monogrammed purse.

Usually, I cut out the initial (or other embellishment), use fusible webbing to “glue” it to the flap, and then sew around the edges. That’s what I did with the “e” on Ellie’s purse, for example…

…and with the crown on Mikayla’s purse.

But this time, I didn’t have any fusible web. (Or, rather, couldn’t find it.) So I sewed a layer of black fabric over the animal print fabric, sewed a “C” outline through both layers, then cut away just the black layer inside the outline.

Hmm, Lucy’s going to a party this weekend for sweet little Cora down our street – perhaps I should whip up another “C” purse…
