New Purse

23 January 2010

It is seldom that I make things for myself. I enjoy making things for other people...and I love making things for children. Seeing as how we don't have any babies, I mostly tend to make things for others. Be that as it may, I have really been meaning to make a new purse for quite some time. The one I've been using now I made a year ago and it's been through quite a bit of wear and tear. It is still fine, but I've been wanting something new so that I have options. This afternoon I whipped up this cutie. I have had the fabrics for months and hadn't done anything with them yet. I absolutely love these fabrics.
Here's a peek at the inside. The coloring looks slightly yellow here, but it's really a sage-y/celadon color. It coordinates with the exterior. It has a couple pockets on one side and a magnetic closure.
I decided to add my monogram in white too. It was very quick and easy, so I think I may be making more of these in the future.
For those of you curious about pics of the craft room...definitely still a work in progress. We moved the new big table in and got things shifted around. But I still have organization do. It'll take me some time. I'm going out of town for work for a couple days, so perhaps the end of this coming week or next weekend I'll be able to make some progress.
