    I have been doing the sewing for some of my family and friends this last week and I just finished up the little purse a couple hours ago. I hope you enjoy seeing them. The green ones are corderoy with purple leather accents and handles.

    This is the little one. It has a body made from a heavy tapistry fabric with navy blue leather details and straps, and indigo blue denium strap tabs and snap closure tab. (A vogue pattern) I added the zipper to the back because I love to put my keys in a back pocket. Even though this isn't mine, I like to add features I like if they aren't included.

    For my buddy who always wears blue jeans....

    I love both of these. I adore that shade of blue with the red on the pjs. And I would love to learn more about the purses that you made.

    Thanks so much girls! The p.j.'s top has dancing ice cream coneson it. I got it at hancock's last week. I just couldn't resist it. The lite aqua check was the only fabric I liked with it in the whole store. It is a mcCall's pattern.

    The green purses are a simplicty pattern and it has white fleece padding and sew in stiff interfacing. They have matching cording along the edges to protect them from wear. I will go up and get the number later to post for you, Hunnib, if you are interested. They still sell it.

    Thanks so much!
    I would like to have a pair like this too, teri. LOL!

    Thanks little hud, mountain moma, diana, hunib,and sharon b.! I am not a fast sewer, but I really try to get it as perfect as I can.

    I was really happy with my bernina. It sewed though all those layers and fabrics like it was butter. How nice that was.

    I was mainly interested in the fabrics you used. My daughter likes this style bag. She doesn't like inside pockets. I've made some similar from scratch but I like yours much better. :)

    Thank you so much sewnsewer, ladybugquilter, ducky, pocoellie and Lisa! It is so reassuring to hear such nice comments.

    Hunnib ... I use a heavier weight of fabric and thread on most of my purses. It gets some hard use, and I want it to hold up to it for a long time.

    Your purses would sell great in a high end shop like NYC. Have you thought of submitting one to a buyer or consignment shop? You definitely have great potential with them! PJ's are adorabbbbbble!

    Awww ... Thanks so much. :oops:

    Your sweet words are like music to my ears thanks so much... n2scraplvr, Barb. quilt4u, gaigai, renee, grammy Dwynn, and dkbeck.

    I have sold a few of them. But, only to friends as gifts. I don't enjoy it as much as making gifts for friends. Three at fourty five and one at fifty dollars. I am way too slow to be able to do this for a living. LOL!

    Really, by the time you buy all of the accent leather, handles, the hardware and other materials, there really isn't that large of a profit margin. I think it would take the fun out of it.
