This is what the purse looks like up close:
I added an extra square on the side to hold my cell phone. It was super easy just to sew it right on top of the side:
I was also able to add a pocket and this time I finished the top edge so it would match the rest of the enclosed seams:
After the purse was completed, I covered a piece of chipboard with fabric and laid it in the bottom for some extra stability. But, quite honestly, the purse stood well enough on its own. It was such a fun project and had I worked continuously, I could have easily finished in just a few hours.
My supplies were quite simple this time:
Accessories: Big Shot ( I know you really want one now), Scallop Square Die, Pretty in Pink Corduroy Buttons
You can easily complete this purse using 1 yard of fabric, a small amount of quilt batting, and a sewing machine. Although I cannot sell the instructions (because it is not my original creation) I can sell a kit or the completed purse. So, if you are interested in either, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org for complete details.
Well, I must get on to this month's card class and stop playing around :) 'Til next time.....
