View Full Version : Paganini Caprice No. 24 Purse
02-16-2008, 03:28 AM
Hey everyone! This is my second purse from the Two Measures of Joy pattern from Elann. I made it for the 21st birthday of a very dear friend: an amazing singer/violinist. Like the first purse I made from this pattern, I used needle felting instead of embroidery for the notes. It was pretty hard to fit all these notes on, but definitely worth it. Let me know what you think!

that is beautiful, it has turned out wonderfully. are the notes part of a partiular song, or are they just a random selection?

The notes are from the first two measures of Caprice No. 24 by Nicolo Paganini.

For anyone who wants to hear it, click on this: http://www.amazon.com/Niccolo-Paganini-Caprices-Solo-Violin/dp/samples/B000003D11/ref=dp_tracks_all_1#disc_1
and then scroll down to the list of pieces. At the bottom of the list, click on "see all 24 tracks". Go to the last one, no. 24, and click on either Amazon's audio or Window's Media, whichever one works for you, and then happy listening!
I love it! It looks great.

That is just AMAZING! If you don't mind my asking, where did you find the pattern? Is it online, or in a book? I sing, play piano, and teach, and I would love to have something like this to carry my music.
It's just beautiful. You're a wonderful knitter, and a wonderful friend. :yay:

It is beautiful. Good job.Where did you get the pattern?

Wonderful gift for a musical friend. I was wondering if the notes had been personalized to be part of the Paganini piece mentioned? Great job as well.
