Thistle Embroidered Wool Suit Coat Purse
by Heather Lair Designs
This week, our tag workshop will focus on this unique upcycled purse by Heather Lair Designs. The description reads: This lovely little purse is made from parts of gently used wool suit coats. I construct the purse in pieces so I have an opportunity to embellish all over with embroidery. I developed a new design for this purse- thistle flowers and leaves!
This purse has a flap on the front that closes with a vintage button.
There is a patch pocket on the back for your cell phone, business cards or keys. Inside there are three pockets to help keep things organized.

Each list has some great style and technique keywords that real shoppers use. Even if you make very similar items, it’s important not to get into a tagging rut by using the same word combinations for every listing. Remember that tags can describe not only what an item is, but what makes it special as well.
