LOL! I have to say Chameleonhound, it was brave of you to admit you work for the Post Office. I have heard some people get mad at them on here. Brave! And I think you guys do a wonderful job. As I always say, I wouldn't drive it there for less than a buck!

Love the way the handles have the jeans on the front and the John Deer on the inside. Neat detail! Can't wait to see what else you come up with in the Craft-a-long!

texscrapper, I like your bag! For some reason I REALLY like the way you did the straps with the two fabrics. Neat idea!
and liliv-1, the bow is so lovely! I cab't wait to see how that will turn out!

 My sister's birthday is coming up and every year I try to make her a purse. I wasn't able to do it last year due to a case of laziness but this year the Purse Craft-along came around just in time to save me! I will also have to give some credit to the snow storm that kept me home from work yesterday.  Tongue

 Here is the purse I made her. She is into Edgar Allen Poe recently. I got the Nevermore fabric and this is what I came up with.
 Front of bag

and the back

 inside I added the raven to the pocket because I know she loves ravens. I also used light fabric to make it easier to find things in.

And here is the whole thing so you can see how long the handles are

 The gusset is done in the same splotchy black fabric.

 I am going to fill it up with a bunch of Poe and bat stuff for her. Not quite sure what spells and maple leaves have to do with Poe but apparently they do (?). I hope she likes it.  Embarrassed
 C&C welcome and thanks for checking it out!

me too! I did manage to rip that seam out and sew it back in. Here is the purse I made for my sisters b-day. It's not til the first week of April so I will have to wait to see if she likes it.
 Very simple easy pattern. I am slowing dipping my toe back into sewing.
Here is the front of the purse.

and here is the back

 the inside with the purse with a shot of the raven on the pocket. I always choose light colors for the inside. I think it makes it easier to find things.

 Here is the whole things so you can see how long the handles are. I can't get the picture the turn(?)


 Yay! One down!!! I never would have gotten this done without the craft-a-long. I needed the motivation! Thanks everyone!!!

I sewed and napped and procrastinated and then sewed some more. I WOULD be done right now if I didn't just sew my liner on inside-out. Grrrr. I was distracted by my kitty wanting to help me. I'll have to tell her she sucks at sewing.  Wink

Texscapper - hope things work out for you after the break. That always helps me too!

 Where are you at kaz814? I am sewing in the storm too! In VA. LOL! I just finished cutting out the rest of the pieces and ironing on all the interfacing. Next up... the actual sewing!
