I got a chance to finish some purses that I needed to do for a while. Both of my sisters received their Birthday purses a little late. Better late than never seems to apply to the purses. I also finished a purse for myself.
|The Two-Hour Tulip Purse|
This is the Tulip Purse I made for my Sister Jennifer. The pattern is by Janice D. Pope. A good pattern to use. I love how it turned out, the colors remind me of Fall my favorite time of year.
|Vogue pattern V8680|
This purse I made for my Sister Elizabeth. I used leather and upholster fabric with this. I think I would have been happier with it, if I used the fabric on the bottom of the bag. That way you wouldn't get the leather showing at the bottom.
Here is my purse, I had started this purse in the Spring, but couldn't sew the top trim down using my walking foot machine.
I just recently pick up a machine that I could use to sew the top of the purse. (more about my new toy on a later post.)
I can't remember what pattern I used for this purse. I love the colors I used in this bag, nice and bright. Just enough room for my wallet, coin purse and a few other things. It's nice to have a purse that isn't too big.
I'm busy working with Jeans right now whipping up a few new bags. I might even think up a pattern for the one purse I'm working on.
