It's been awhile since I have posted here. I was holed up in my craft cave sewing and quilting for spring craft fairs. They were very successful but prep time was all-consuming! The March ones are over for another year and now it is onto getting ready for May. But I have a bit of a break here and now am getting caught up on a few things - like my blog!
So today I was back in the craft cave! However, I actually made something for myself! Yeah! I decided it was time to make myself a new purse. So, as I was sorting through patterns and my fabric stash I came across this pink and black polka dot fabric! So after ironing, cutting, stitching, quilting, and constructing the fabric was transformed into this purse!!
I quilted the purse with straight line quilting following the same angle used to join the two pieces of fabric.
I used both the pink and the black fabric for the inside lining as I couldn't decided on just one!
The grommets were an exercise in faith. You actually need to cut out a circle through all the layers in order to assemble the grommets! But they turned out really well and I love that they are large enough you can actually see through them!
I'm hoping to make a matching wallet in the near future so stay tuned for that post!
Thanks for stopping by...
