    Not a Quilt... but I designed it myself!

    OK, so it isn't a quilt... but I'm just so proud of myself!! I made it myself (duh) with NO PATTERN and NO REFERENCE!!

    You all have that one material you just LOVE and want to keep for yourself? Well, this twigs fabric is it for me, so I've been keeping it at the bottom of my stash bin for something special.

    So, I made myself a purse! It even has a boxed bottom (with extra layers of batting for stability) a snap-button, and a nearly-useless front pocket!

    The original idea was for it to be reversable, but that didn't happen so well, but at least the inside is pretty too!

    AND I used EVERY LAST SCRAP of my favorite fabric. I guess you could say the purse was designed around it?

    Anyway, here's the pics.

    Beautiful and so very useful. I'm glad you are keeping it for yourself.
