This was way harder than it looks.
Acclaimed artist Andrew Thornton (of Allegory Gallery in Ligonier, PA) recently asked -- very nicely, I might add -- folks to post something new or a favorite work.
I'd just finished this customized purse for Julie Guilbeau Jernigan. Now, I hadn't made a purse since I took a class several years ago with Kathleen Halverson Dustin, and I'd forgotten how challenging its design and construction could be. But I'm thrilled with how it turned out!
