Paganini Caprice No. 24 Purse
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?
