Hi, this is my first post on craftster.
This is the first purse I have ever made:
I only sewed on the really easy parts... which weren't that easy because of the vinyl. My mom, the experienced sewer, sewed the majority of the purse. It was incredibly
difficult even for her.
The fur fabric came from an old purse I had. It was a huge bulky messenger purse that went to my knees and made me get too hot in the summer (Texas heat... eww). I hadn't used it in months so I decided to re-use the fabric because my sister gave me the purse for Christmas. I bought the vinyl from Jo-Anns Fabric. We just made up a pattern of our own based on my drawing and went from there.
It's not absolutely perfect though, there's a ton of itty bitty mistakes that a normal person probably wouldn't notice at first. I'm just one of those extremely nit-picky persons so I notice mistakes too easily and stress out way too much over them as well.
Anyway, I'm thrilled with the purse. My mom said I have to use it for the rest of my life after all the stress we had to go through to make it, heh.
