    New purse

    I just finished this purse and it was a great pattern...the mini Miranda bag. I changed it a bit and added the fabric flower.

    Very pretty! I like to make purses/totes as well. I'll have to check out this pattern as well. I like the size.
    Pay It Forward.

    Great job.
    I don't want to brag but I can still fit into the earrings I wore in high school.

    Thanks everyone! I always use 987F fleece and Decor Bond in my purses. Both can be purchased at Joann's.

    The flower was easy to make.

    For flower:

    *Cut fabric 42" x 4"

    *Fold in half, lengthwise, with RIGHT sides together. Stitch ends in 1/4" seam.

    *Turn RIGHT side out. Press. To gather, machine stitch 1/4" from raw edge, using a long machine stitch.
    Pull up gathers as tightly as possible. Fasten thread ends securely.

    *To form flower, starting with one end, turn strip in a spiral, making smaller spirals on tope and tacking flower as you
    taper end at center.

    Just wondering where the raw edge is if we sewed RST and turned right side out. Do you mean 1/4" in from one of the ends??

    Had a little idea.....how would it work to use 2 fabrics. Cut them at 21/4" each, sew them RST and turn rightside out etc. You would have a two-toned flower.

    Yeah, it says sew 1/4" on the ends. Like the two-toned flower idea. I actually wanted to make this one with the two fabrics but then just went with the one.
