em-bel-ish - a purse

Note that the closure is a hair elastic.
I think that if you need to ask the question 'is it enough?' The answer is always NO! Here is a great example of that idea.

I made a purse...it really needs to be decorated.

4 layers of nylon net, cut 4 & 6" wide

layer one on top of the other, long stitch down the middle

pull gathers to desired length
pin ruffle on to purse
a polka dot ribbon and a plain ribbon, gathered again

the back, all ewn
for the front closure, I cut 10, 4" circles, gathered the center

a large button, it's finished1
