    Denim Purse and Scarf to Match

    Just finished my scarf to match my Denim purse. The scarf is made with Starbella from Premier Yarns. The pattern is on their website, only 8 stitches and a couple of hours. I made several purses without a pattern, from 2 1/2" strips with batting. Zig zagged together similar to the clothesline purses. The batting is a softer look and stitches up much nicer in my opinion. I also made the button from Fimo clay. Hard to find large buttons in the colors I need.

    Love the bag and the scarf. I made one of the scarfs for DD. I need to make myself one as well. So easy and so cute. Nice job.

    You are very creative!!! Thank you for sharing.

    It would be nice if you did a little tutorial on how you put your bag together. Love the button!

    Thank you all for your kind comments. I made several bags in different colors. I would love to be able to sell them, but they are very time consuming. I recently lost my job and hopefully I can sell some of my items. Just need to find a good source to market them other than Etsy and Ebay. Not ready for that at this time. I need to take baby steps as working full time all my life consumed me.

    Very nice combination, I also love the denim bag and would love to see a tutorial. What is a clothes line bag?
    Thanks for sharing.

    A clothesline bag is when you wrap 2 1/2" strips around a cotton clothesline and then shape the line into the bag. There is a pattern called "Bali Bags" that you can google to get an idea. I use the same 2 1/2" strips (Jelly Rolls) and wrap them in batting instead. Gives it a softer and flatter look which is easier to zig zag. I didn't use a pattern, just winged it as I do with many projects. I've never prepared a tutorial. I'll try to work on one.
