    Here is a purse I made tonight. Took me about 2 1/2 hours to make it. I reinforced it with thermo web and a cotton fabric. Made it very sturdy to work with but sewing the straps to hold the handle was a PAIN. But its cute I think.

    That's nice Henry. Is that a Satin Brocade material? It looks like it would be slippery to work with. Who will be the lucky recipient?

    Hi Pam that is a satin brocade material. It wasnt slippery to work with because I used thermo web to fuse the cotton to the other side and it made it very sturdy to work with then. I do not know who will be the lucky person who gets it. :)

    I like the purse, I too make purses to sell. One little bit of advise. Women love pockets inside the purse. Just a thought for you.

    Henry, what creativity! I just love your style. Are you going to put it on etsy? Oh the handles, are they the ones you bought at JoAnn's?

    I too make purses. I use some silk, all are lined with pocket and handles made with lined fabric. I do embellish them with beads and funky threads. I and am looking for a ballpark figure to charge for them. Any suggestions??

    Hi, I am signed up at Better Homes & Gardens and got this email today for this pattern. I thought you Henry might like it. It is for a tote but with pockets. Take a look. I am going to post this also in links. After the tote is how to make a matching wallet and checkbook cover.

    You are really getting great at making these! This one should go 'quick'! Next thing is we'll hear about 'H' and his line of purses...and, they will all have to have one!:))Just like the other famous initials in our markets. Good job! Will anxiously await to see your next creative moment...Skeat
