Amulet purse

These pictures are of an amulet purse I made from instructions in Isuue 30 of Quilting Art magazine. I find so much inspiration from that publication.
This was fun to make, I was certain I had so many beads in my stash that I would have the right ones, but no, I had to make a couple of trips to the local beading shop for the right colours, of course I came home with more than I intended! Perhaps with the next purse I make I really will have the right size and colour.
Showery and cool here today, but blowing about 30 knots so not too pleasant outside at all. We have to go to an Annual meeting for the University Library Society tonight, just hoping for a quorum, people are real wimps about going out in rain, especially to AGMs!
We are heading to Gladstone then for Easter with the Grandkids - 4 boys, so lots of noise and fun. Back Tuesday, hopefully with an interesting picture or two to post.
Happy Easter to you all.


  1. What a beautiful Amulet Purse Robin.
    Have a great Easter with the family and stay away from the chocolate eggs.

  2. Your amulet bag is gorgeous! The colors are so irridescent and so pretty.

    Isn't that always the way....we think we have so much in our stash and then when we begin a project there's always one thing we have to buy. Happens all the time and yet I can't even walk in my studio for all the stuff I have!

  3. Hi Robin - Thanks for commenting on my blog as I now know about yours! I love all of your bags and boxes - just beautiful and I totally agree that it is very hard to restrict yourself to using JUST what you have!! Hope you are having a creative weekend!
