    Upside down pockets

    My sister came this weekend to quilt and for me to show her how to make a bow tuck purse. I have only made about fifteen of them. We got her quilt quilted an did a little shopping then worked on her bow tuck and finished it. She was finishing pressing it and said "Sue, we sewed the inside pockets upside down!" I could not believe it, but after looking, only one side was upside down. No way was either one of us taking it apart. We would have had to rip it all out. So now she has a purse made with secret pockets. She was so proud of the fact that she made a slot for her pen to go into. Of course it was the upside down side. I doubt she will want my help anymore.

    Just think how neat and tidy the inside of her purse will look

    I did that on my lining pockets one time, I just sewed the top shut and opened up what should have been the bottom. Since it was inside my own purse, I didnt care.

    If it had been for a gift, I would have ripped it out and re-sewn.

    That's why I don't care to make purses. I always goof them up...usually way worse than this. I'll stick to quilts and rag dolls.

    A very unique purse.
    A friend is someone who knows all about you and loves you anyway.
