I was admiring a fellow quilter's purse at Kids Camp a few weeks ago. Of course she'd made it herself. (Am I the only quilter who doesn't carry a self-made purse?) Anyway, I became obsessed...like I often do, and kept touching it and saying how awesome it was...even after she'd offered to send me the pattern! I'm a bit much some times.
Anyway, this is her awesome purse! It's a pattern she or a friend had previously purchased which she made modifications to.
I decided the first one I made would be for my sis. I went to my stash and chose this gorgeous Australian print and coordinating color for the lining.
And this is what happened!
I used an ultra firm fusible stabilizer on the purse body and décor-bond (firm) on the lining. I didn't much like my experience w/the ultra firm stabilizer though...but I got 'er done!
There's a deep pocket on one side and a more shallow one on the other. These, like the inside pockets can be customized to your needs (the possibilities are endless) but I'm quite fond of them just the way they are.
Here is my sis modeling it both ways.
Here it is before I got the wooden handles
