loving this fabric!Posted: June 20, 2011
My friend Sheri wanted me to make her a purse and a matching insulated lunch bag which is ironic because her sewing adventures several years ago greatly impacted my willingness to start sewing seriously.
She chose fabric I bought a couple years ago for MYSELF, specifically for a purse! I offered it up to her because I figured if I hadn’t done anything with it in that long, it was time to go to someone else. I didn’t mind one bit. Until I started sewing the purse she wanted! Then I was sad that I hadn’t made a purse for myself because it looks EXACTLY how I thought it would. Which is to say GREAT!
I tried a few new things with this purse…elastic cased pockets and water bottle holder
and funky flower pins to add some detail to the bag.
The lunch bag is channel quilted…my new favorite! I just love how this looks!
Enjoy, Sheri, enjoy!
What can I make from the scraps?
