This is the first image in the Pocketbook Portfolio. I chose the oldest looking purse in the group. This one has an interesting pear shape, crisp tiny pleats and small green stones on the clasp. It has a tiny satin coin purse inside that is connected with a cord and the whole purse is about life size in this image. There are no labels inside but it does not look entirely hand made.
After tracing the drawing I transferred it to the 9"x9" block using graphite carbon paper. Tomorrow afternoon I will trace the image again with permanent marker so that the lines will not get lost when the printing starts. I am really looking forward to carving.
