    Batik 'Monet' Purse

    I found a couple of great looking batik fat quarters at Walmart that reminded me of a Monet painting and had some Moda fabric in stash that I thought went well with it and made the purse below. I devised the pattern myself as this is the type of purse I prefer to carry (and cut the pattern out of some thin flexible packing wrap, don't know what it's called but it's sturdy enough to use many times without tears). Thanks for viewing .

    That is really pretty and it does look like Monet painting with that fabric.

    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Love your Monet! How about a tutorial? Your purse looks simple and easily accessible which are some things that are very important to me. I do not like fiddling with all sorts of pockets, etc. as I easily forget where I put what.

    You have picked beautifully soft colors.

    Just wanted to add I love how you made your handles two toned.

    A very beautiful bag. Loved the curved stitching on the top flap.

    Oh that is just sooo pretty. What did you use in the bottom of your bag for stiffness? Really nice fabric choices. Yes I would like a tute also.
