    New Purse for Florida trip!

    Purse I made for our trip to Florida this month. I used a pattern called BYOB, Bring Your Own Bag with a little Bow Tucks Bag thrown in. Not sure I like the fabric flower, may take that off. I couldn't decide on a lining fabric so turned the main fabric wrong side for the lining.

    I put then on before it finished. I find the easiest way to line them up is to attach them just before you sew the bottom of the lining together after you have sewed the purse to the lining and have turned it. You can place a mark on the bag lining where you want the snap and still being able to get your hand inside the lining you can put on magnet and bend the prongs on it to hold in place. I did see a bag that the magnet was put on after it was made and to cover the prongs on the outside of the bag she had sewed buttons over it. Button looked like it was supposed to be there. Hope this helps.

    Great! It has a nice "beachy" look to it.

    Very pretty and like your idea of using the wrong side of the fabric for the lining.

    Very snazzy looking bag. I keep getting tempted to try one seeing all the bags like yours that are soooo good looking.

    Looks really neat, maybe you could make a blue yoyo center to that flower from the darker blue strip instead of the button you used?

    Thanks sew much everyone for the nice comments. We have had to cut are trip to Florida short. Our brother n law, husband sister's husband, was killed in a climbing accident Tuesday evening. We packed up and left Fl this morning early headed to Utah. We left at 5:30 this morning from Kissimmee Fl and right now we are stopped for the night in Jackson, MS. We still have a lot of miles to go. Say a prayer.

    Very nice purse. I'm with you on the flower...doesn't do much for me. Ever try using some jewelry ie: a pin or something on that order? Or maybe a ribbon tied bow or make fabric covered buttons? Look for things out of the ordinary. These are all suggestions made by a friend and I have discovered several things I like. I find myself always checking out things where ever I'm shopping. Try it.
