Sharing at several Linky Parties.Enjoyed the morning in my warm sewing room with a cup of coffee and creating.
I needed a new bag to carry my Bible, study book and journal to church. The one I was using wasn't of winter colors. I had made it back when Vera Bradley Purses first became popular and had made a pattern. I couldn't find it and had to create again! Amazing how much stuff you lose when you move homes.
Combined scrap fabrics from the 400 Mile Yard Sale and the ton of fabric a special friend gave to me, and used old tailor batting I had picked up at restore.
This purse may have cost me around $2. (Not counting my over priced sewing machine.)
For this purse, I do like the heavier stitch letters on the other side of the purse.
Took extra time for some trimming details.
. I added fabrics and square stitch corners to make it look like it has an added bottom.
Everything is lined. Yes, I used a metal zipper, because I have a bunch of old ones that I had cut from clothing years ago.
Of course I have to have inside pockets for pencils, pens, calendar, phone & check book.
If there is enough interest, I might get in the mood to make a tutorial and share the pattern I used.
You'll find this post at several Linky Parties. Please check them out for some great ideas.
