My new Lady's Reticule for your iPod Touch/iPhone/Cellphone was inspired by those handbag patterns of the 19th century. This is the first completed prototype and I played around with different embellishments I had in mind. I am also considering doing a netted version that is lined and features a drawstring closure (more in keeping with the more popular styles back then) and small pouch or pocket for earbuds.
The body of this one was hand crocheted in a dense Tunisian crochet pattern with cotton/acrylic blend yarn.
The top is edged with a delicate hand crocheted lace tipped with glass seed beads. A button closure keeps your iPod secure!
A hand crocheted flower with a beaded lace center and beaded bottom edging finish it off.
This is only a prototype and not necessarily what my final pieces will look like. So, with continued effort, and any opinions/suggestions you may have, I am hoping to work out different designs and get some of these up on Etsy by June. ❀
