Purse Skirt Possibilities- Endless

Sewing Machine Gifts 2012- A Series

MORE Purse Skirts!

When you open your mind to the possibility of using ANY fabric and not just from the fabric store, then you won't stop.  Also, if you have an embroidery machine and you have found all the free stuff at the Sew Forum, & Embroidery RN then you'll have an endless number of skirt purses.  

Here are the rest of the purse skirts I created for Christmas gifts. Hope this gets your brainstorm going.  enJOY!
From upholstery/curtain fabric.

A loose weave fabric doesn't require facing for these skirts.
The "Tinker Toy" embroidery font can be found free @

 Made 2 skirts out of sweater sleeves leftover from last year's Sweater Pillow projects.
 Embroidery RN also has a College Applique font

 I really liked the "Amaze Font" found over on the Sew Forum.  It stitches out very nicely without any touch up and of course its FREE!

And finally, a Christmas gift to myself.  While visiting my Mother at Christmas, I found a pair of slacks she said she couldn't wear any more.  They were made of corduroy which fit the bill for my need of a winter purse skirt.
 This font is called "Feel Font" and is also found free @ the Sew Forum.
The good thing about putting the monogram on a pocket is if there is a mistake, you've haven't used a lot of fabric, plus you have an extra pocket!
Pockets?  That gives me even more ideas.  How about you?
