    Pocketbook

    This has been my most challenging pocketbook to date. I think I "unsewed" as much as I sewed.

    the first time I tried the little multicolor on point squares in the last picture, I was positive the directions were wrong. They're not a bit hard----------if you have faith!

    The different techniques came from the book, Folded Fabric Elegance by Rami Kim. Both the lined prairie points and the chop keys were easy. The North American smocking (close-up third picture) was time consuming and a bit tedious, but not really hard. I didn't have any directions for making the bag, just used basic directions from previous bags. Thanks for all of your kind words.

    Wow! Your purse pics came just in time. I've been looking for folded flowers, etc., for quite some time. Only found one book so far. I will surely look yours up. Thanks for sharing!
