    I decided another purse was in order - too many thrift shop finds just crying to be made into something! I posted one I made from a wool jacket and corduroy pants - http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-106170-1.htm

    This one is more "spring"y and better suited to a younger crowd perhaps...
    Here is where it began (I wish I'd done this for the jacket and pants on the other one, but didn't think until I had already cut into them)...
    and the result.

    It's a bought pattern. It's Butterick #B5109, view A. Sometimes I make up the pattern, sometimes I use one I've picked up at Hancock Fabrics. Plus, I only buy them when I can get them for 99 cents so it keeps my cost down. I have a few to choose from that I've collected. This was just something quick and easy to try out the fabrics.

    I also make purses out of wool blazers I get at the thrift shop for under $2.00. I wash them in woolite and then make purses out of them.
