I made this back in April and have been wanting to share. I saw another post on craftster about Ric Rac's 1-hour purse (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=234709.0
) and tried it out--it was great for someone who had never made a purse before. I highly recommend this pattern--very cute and very easy!
All the fabric is from a pillow sham I got at Goodwill for 50 cents and have been saving for just the right project--I think the wavy pattern looks so good on this! I did modify it slightly and did a flap with a button cause I had the supplies on hand. I also learned that I will probably use some sort of iron-on interfacing or heavier stabilizer (than the flannel I used) next time, as it is a bit floppy after two months of use. Does anyone have a recommendation for use with plain cotton? I have some other fabric I'd like to use but would like it with a bit more body.
Comments welcome, thanks for looking!
My daughter wanted in on all the picture taking so we have one of the purse we sewed together for her--here she is showing the inside. Too cute!
