Purse from Dordrecht

Another purse finished!

This purse is also depicted in "Purses in pieces" and was found i Dordrecht (Holland).

The front compartment has its opening on the inside of the front flap. And this time i decided to make the front compartment from textile, rather than leather.
the description of the purse said thet the front compartment had been made from either chamois or textile.
I used unbleached linnen canvas.

(BTW: If you know where to get good quality chamois. Please tell me!)



The reason why I wanted to make this purse is the three pouchlets.
They are made from a single piece of leather. All the other purses I have made have pouchlets made from seperate pieces.
I think this solution gives the purse a much simpler look.





The dye that i used for this purse is the same that i used for the Nieuwlande-purse.

Thats two purses done. Now theres only two more to go :-)

Hur fin som heslt, gillar hur du utformar "fönstret" högst upp på väskorna. Det verkar finnas en mängd variationsmöjligheter där.

Jag tittade förresten lite bakåt i tiden på din gamla blogg och ville bara säga att det helt klart märks att du utvecklas. De är såklart jättefina väskorna du gjorde för några år sedan, men de du gör nu är ändå några strån vassare. Jag kan inte riktigt sätta fingret på vad det är, men helhets-känslan på de senaste håller en riktigt riktigt hög nivå.
Bra jobbat!

Tak for de meget pæne ord! :-)
Jeg føler virkelig også at der er sket en stor udvikling mht. mine håndværksmæssige egenskaber. Både hvad angår kendskab til materialer og teknikker.
Så det er dejligt at også andre kan se at der er sket noget!

Ang udskæringerne i ophænget på bæltetaskerne, så er der i hvert fald ti forskellige i "purses in Pieces"... og man har sikkert anvendt endnu flere "den gamg i middelalderen".
