    Purses. to make, more reasons for fabric

    I was looking for a possible way to make a quilted purses, and I think I learned about this webage from some one on the QB.
    http://www.allcrafts.net/sewing/pursesew.htm

    It has lots of interesting options!

    Today I made two test runs with fabric I had. I did have to run to JA form large eyelets, but I managed to not buy any fabric!

    The purses are designed to close when suspended, so they look a little dumpy sitting on my ironing table, but when I tried to take a picture of them over my arm I looked a little dumpy!

    I think the blue and orange one is going to be my new lunch bag for work.

    (both handles are repurposed items- the rope was from a pair of shorts I bought this summer that came with a rope belt! Yeah, cause that is the look I am going for on a summer day! Though I am sure it would be darling in a size 6.)
    When I am perfect, I will write a book and everyone can be perfect too. Until then I will just have to be gracious in face of imperfection, and ask the same of everyone else for my imperfections.

    I love them. I found that pattern last week and was toying with the idea of making one. YOurs came out so cute!

    Those look great. I have lots of fabric set aside in combinations for bags, but I never have the nerve to make them. I'm off to check out the link!
