Although I just started making the "Treasure House" purses in 2003, they are exactly like my "Treasure House" boxes which I have been making for about 32 years and sell to galleries and shops around the country.
The houses are assembled entirely with needle and thread. I use a multitude of different fabrics, trims, and stitchery - all coordinated to achieve realistic end results. The interior framework is "Lexan", a stiff flexible plastic which I purchase by the sheet and cut into the various shapes.
I am self taught for the most part, taking courses here and there along the way. Although I'm past the usual retirement age, I will continue to create for my collectors' enjoyment and mine.
