    Patchwork Purse

    This is a purse I made for my oldest DGD when she was 10. She is 22 now. I was asked to do a zipper tutorial and I am going to do one soon. I was explaining how I put this zipper in to a friend and took pics tonight to show her so thought I would share them.
    This was all done by hand sewing without a sewing machine which is one reason it is fluffy and not as flat

    This is a beautiful and true to patchwork purse. You did such a pretty job hand stitching the entire purse. You must be so proud of it. I would be. You did such wonderful stitching putting this purse together. Thank you for showing this to us.

    You must have done some superb hand sewing for it to last 12 years! Cute bag and still fashionable after all these years. Thanks for sharing.

    Wow! I am marveling at how very nice this looks at 12 years old. I went and looked thru my few bags and no one in there is near that age and none look any better.....The handsewing is wonderful too.

    They're easy to make. They're just tubes stuffed with stuffing.

    I love this bag. It looks like it would hold all my stuff and that's hard to find.
