    Summer purses

    These are 2 more purses that I made with the Vera pattern. The first one I made was with the brown with bright funky flowers on it. The purse with the 'Fun in the Sun' ladies is for me. I wanted to try the pattern with the fusible fleece to give it more stability. That stuff is a pain to fuse. I think next time I will just use Warm and Natural and quilt it a little more. The beige/ teal purse is for my DDIL. She is coming to Michigan with my DGS tomorrow and her birthday is in August- plus she is a photographer and I saw the Moda fabric with the antique cameras on it and immediately thought of her. Then I found the cosmetic bag pattern on the internet and made those too. I hope that she likes them as much as I do. The purse is very easy to make and there are so many things you can do for the bag body to change the look of it.Name:  image.jpg

    Your purses are wonderful. I would be proud to have either one. I have never made a purse (just tote bags) and you have inspired me to try to make one. Thanks for sharing.

    Very nice bags and the cosmetic bags really set them off even more. Great job! Wish I were so talented.

    You did a great job on the bags. I've made several Bow Tucks bags using fusible fleece and every once in a while it doesn't like to fuse - maybe it's a different manufacturer - but then I just use a little fusible spray - problem solved, hope this helps. I especially like the addition of the smaller bag with the purses - nice touch.
