    My test purse

    I found a free pattern online for Amy Butler's Blossom Bag. I adored it. I want to make one using a pretty brocade that I found in teal with gold paisleys on it, but before I do that I wanted to make sure that I could do the pattern. So I picked up some decorator fabric (similar to outdoor fabric) and whipped it up. It was a little tough at times but I got it working. It looks sooo cute! Have a feeling there will be some nice purses for Christmas presents this year

    Nice work, especially with the inside pockets! I made one complicated bag...and have decided it's quilts for me, but I sure admire you for doing such a nice job on the purse.

    Great job. I've been looking for a good new pattern and haven't found anything yet that fits the bill. This just might do. Most bags are either too small, or too large. or look like all the other bags out there.

    You may have just converted me to the quilted bag world. I generally don't care for them, but this one is really calling me. You did a wonderful job on it.
