    Here's a little purse I made today. I saw them on another forum and had to try. It turned out really cute. After seeing the prices for purse handles ($6.00 or better) I went to a thrift store and got a purse for $2.00. I also put pockets on the inside.

    Placemat purse.

    Inside of the purse. it does show the raw edges. (didn't think of that when I sewed it together)

    Thanks everyone. I had fun making it. When I figure out how to fix the raw edges i'm going to make a few as Christmas presents. My next small project is to make a matching checkbook cover to go with my pretty new purse!

    Love the purse. Great idea about putting pockets inside. I do not know who designs purses these days but none of them have any zippers or pockets inside. Boy do I hate that!!! Takes you a half hour to find anything. Obviously not designed by a woman.

    you did a great job, very pretty purse! You really had your thinking cap on when you bought the used purse for the handles :D I have seen placemat purses before but have not tried one myself. You may have inspired me to give it a try. Just think you have a start on Christmas gifts already, lucky girl.

    I love to make purses. I have a Just Jennifer pattern that I love it has a lot of pockets inside, everyone that has one just loves the pockets.

    Yours is nice also.

    Happy quilting. :lol:
