    Ok, now that I was able to make a clothesline purse, it is too 'young looking' for me. :(

    I won't be making any more anytime too soon I will tell you that. :lol:



    It has a magnet for the closure

    ss, I think it looks great! And you are NEVER too old for a great looking purse. Because of the colors I would use it in the spring & summer, but you could make interchangeable flowers and use it all year long!

    Good job!

    I would just take the flowers off altogether & leave it as is.

    That is great! I tried to make one , and it was a mess. I thought is was so hard to get the needle through the clothesline.

    Thanks. It looks too plain without the flowers.

    I used cotton clothes line and it is still too stiff for me.

    That looks great. Do you have to sew by hand or can you use machine?
    I agree, take off the flowers, add a sash tied in a knot, and carry off to your next LQS spree.

    Never to old.....I think it's great....maybe you would be more comfortable without the flowers....wvdek's idea of a sash tied on is great...maybe a silk scarf or something...anyway, I would use it and I'm galloping toward 50 at a great rate.

    I think it's a great looking purse. And very unusual.

    I have never seen a clothes line purse you did a wonderful job but you are right not something I would be making alot of. My daughter has requested a purse of some sort under the christmas tree-so far all the patterns I have come across I don't care for and to make it harder I have some hard plastic handles I want to use for making her purse.
    Great job.

    Spectacular! I know the work that went into that beauty. My purse ended up being a 4" wide bowl! :D

    Humm, didn't think of that, good idea. Yes it is all done by machine with a zig zag stitch. You have to cut 1/2 wide strips and wind them around the clothesline (very time consuming).

    Here's some instructions.

    Great Job. sewnsewer! I love it. The suggestion for the black sash bow is perfect if you are feeling it is too young for you with the flowers. The girls at the local quilt store are going to be so jelous you changed it for the better.
