I have a soft spot for purses and handbags. If you have been reading my blog for a while, you'll remember the post about the beautiful seed bead purse my mother made for me (see last link below).
You could embellish purses with all sorts of beads too. Here is a fantastic Swarovski Woven Purse tutorial from ArtBeads's Swarovski Resource Guides. Click on the link there for the full pdf instructions.
The tutorial involves making the leather woven section first. The Swarovski beads are then sewn on with transparent nylon thread. If you'd rather not make the woven leather part, I dare say getting a pre-made woven purse and embellishing it with Swarovski pearls will work too. Definitely the way to go if you are more the instant gratification type!
