    Does anyone know where I can get a pattern to make a "concealed carry" purse? There was a lady at the Dallas quilt show last year that was making them, but I lost her email address.

    Dunno, but gal here just got a Featherweight her hubby bought for her at a gun show, and here's another gun-quilt connection. Unexpected! Maybe there's a whole market where cold hard steel meets cotton and wool (other than sewing machines).

    I will ask my sister. She is the field rep for the NRA here in Colorado. My parents owned a Hunting and Fishing store for years. Most of the purses they carried were made of heavy-duty material because of the weight of the fire-arm inside. I doubt cotton fabric would hold up well.

    I agree that there may be a connection :lol: :lol: . The ones at the Dallas show were so cute you wouldn't even have known what they were. I have searched everywhere for her card but I guess it got thrown away. Maybe she will be there again this year. We've actually been to gun shows at the same place that we have had quilt shows.

    I was thinking that using a heavy fabric that doesn't stretch much would be what you would want too. Heavily quilted cotton with a very firm, stiff interfacing may work.
    I guess it would depend on the size/weight of your hand gun and what else you put in the purse too :D:D:D

    ---------------------------------
    I've been wondering myself. I need to get a carry permit, since I always drive alone and often at night. I think that you could double the stiff interfacing and make it handle more like canvas.
    That way the "pretty" look won't advertise what you have in it.

    I would be interested in that pattern as well. Right now I prefer to carry on my person, but if I could remember to carry a purse this would be really useful.

    Yes they are! The lady at the Dallas quilt show was selling them for $50.00 each and they were very well made. But I didn't like any of the fabrics that she had made hers out of and she told me that if I would send her the fabric that I wanted it made out of, she would make it for $50.00. I got her card and when I went to look for it in my stuff, I couldn't find it. If she is there again next month, I will get her information again and post it on this forum.
