    Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! You have just proven to my DD that I am not the ONLY one in the world who uses the term "pocketbook"!
    They are very beautiful.
    Hugs!

    Furza Flyin, my mother used the term all the time, so I still do on occasion, so you are not the only one in the world who calls them that. :)
    I prefer one with lots of pockets, myself! LOL

    Is #2 one of those that you can switch out the outer covering? If so, was it a fairly easy pattern. I've looked at that one a few times.

    Those are very cute. I love making purses. In fact that's what got me back to sewing after 11 years. I ordered a book to make fabric bags/purses and loved sewing again. I have made 1 for myself, 1 for my daugher and 1 for my grandaughter. I have 3 more to make for relatives.

    In turn...making those got me to clean out the closest here in my sewing/computer room. Looking at all of the fabric and patterns and supplies got me thinking that I really needed to get back to sewing.

    Like others have said...you have a one and only. Unless of course someone else loves the fabric you used and wants one just like it. My daughter wants another one...just like mine.

    You are doing a wonderful job. did you mention who the book was that you were getting your patterns from? I love lots and lots of pockets and when the purses are made of fabric they can be washed and hung to dry. I just ordered me a new sewing machine and I just can't wait until it arrives to get started making me a new purse and some small things, I'll be a new sewer and I hope that it will be simple enough for me to catch on to it.
