Making Rachel Barton Pine's Violin Purse

Style - Solving Problems While Making a Violin Purse

Rachel Barton Pine orders Violet Violin Purse from Violettes by Becky Taylor Roman Photography

Making Rachel's Violin Purse was a long process with many construction problems to solve. This record of the construction will remind me not to make the same mistakes in the future. Because she wants the purse as an everyday purse and to hang from her wrist, there were new challenges. The fabric must be ultra sturdy. It was my choice to use a thin leather. I don't have a professional leather machine. If I were to get more orders  like this, I might hire a professional with a leather machine to sew parts of the bag. It was a joy that her favorite color is purple! I couldn't meet her request for sequence around the edge of the purse, so I hope she likes bling!

Please excuse the lengthy videos. I edited them a little, but the whole while I was holding my cell phone in my hand to video myself!!! And I am a relatively quiet person, not used to all the talking, especially when I stayed up most of the night many times (had little sleep) working on the Violet Violettes Violin Bag.

Thanks for watching.

Sincerely,

Becky Chaffee
