Punisher Finish

The Punisher intarsia...done! But, me being me, that really only means that created another project. So, mostly done.

(To see the other posts on this project, please click the label titled 'intarsia' or 'comics')

After making the first Punished piece, I decided to make a Punisher purse. I might be a huge comic book fan, but I'm still a girl. I hooked up a strap and a side/bottom piece and made a purse out of it. This was my first go at lining a project. It went better than expected. My first thought was to line the purse with Cookie Monster fabric. But, everyone I suggested that to flailed about and yelled 'NO WAY!'. In the end, I went with a pink fabric with heats and flowers on it. I needed something to contrast the Punisher bits.

Edge and strap connection:

The edge is one piece, wrapped around and whip stitched onto the front and back sides.


The strap is done in SC with SLST around the edge to help cut down on the stretching...and it just looks good.
