    More purses I have made

    Here are some more purses I have made-Again, used the "Juliet Bag" by Me and My Sister Designs, the "jennifer's Bag" and Shelley's Bag" by Sewphisti-Cat, and the Bow Tuck-I have used the Flip Flap Bag pattern and Sweet Retreat Weekend Bag, both from Whistlepig Creek Productions, and a purse pattern from See and Sew. I may not be able to post all them at once, but will probably make two threads for the rest. Here's hoping I can remember how to post photos!Name:  IMG_5642_1.JPG

    Hi Lori, thanks! I have the same trouble choosing! I actually am aiming for a table at a local craft fair/weekend market here to see if I can sell some. I gave 8 of them away as Xmas presents, and sold 2 and have about 20 left. I am aiming for at least 30 before I attempt to sell them. I have 4 or 5 more I haven't downloaded in the computer yet, so will get to that in the next couple days. I feel guilty now that my quilting has taken a back seat to these purses-I am addicted now!

    I see the same black fabric on the bottom of the black and white bow tuck that I used on the bottom of my bow tuck. I love the bags with the big bows. Is that a pattern or just something you whipped up?

    The pattern with the tie is the "Juliet" purse from Me and My Sister Designs. I am not talented enough to make up my own! I have a huge stash of fabrics and bought quite a lot for the purses-so I will sometimes use the same fabrics (there might be 3 or 4 in a collection) in different purses, or mix them up in the same purse. I spend way too much time trying to decide what fabrics to use for each purse! I love black and whites-I recently bought some black and white with a bit of yellow (5 different fabrics) and am using them now. They look really classy! I still need to down load those newest bags on the computer in order to post them.

    Beautiful, but the bow tuck black and white one is mine. I know - cuz I saw my name on it. Look real close.

    LOL-acutally, that one was a special order I sold to a lady who lives in Virginia-she wanted black and white, so I had to take pictures of a few fabric combos I put together and she chose this one. I sent it to her just after Xmas. Her name is LARA-looked really close, but couldn't see any name-am I missing something????

    They must be growing on me. I've never been a fan of the bow tuck bags. I really like the one with the bows especially the pink one, I also like the black and white floral one with the black button closure. You have done a fantastic job.

    Thanks-the cupcake was was a gift for my niece-she is the "cupcake Queen" in the family!! It was her birthday Dec 30th, so her boyfriend's mother made her a cupcake apron, and I made the purse!

    Wow - lots of work you have done. I love bags also and have the name tag 'bag lady' amongst our family. Good luck with your sales.
    Home is where the heart is, and a few scrappy quilts.

    I love them all and need to try something like this for me as I can't find a pocketbook I like so I need to make myself one. Thanks for the lovely pictures.

    Oh they are so beautiful. You did a great job. I especially like the one from Susan Winglet material...If you don't need it, please send it to me...LOL
    Families are like old quilts....although they tend to unravel at times...each can be stitched back together with love.
