22  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Upholstery Samples & Vintage Fabric - Why not a purse?? on: April 29, 2008 05:34:32 PM
Ok, this is my first attempt at creating something from scratch... No pattern, I just went with the flow.  A friend showed me how to set up the thread and I finally put my grandmother's sewing machine to use. I'm tooootally addicted :-P

This was made from two upholstery swatches/samples that had pre-made metal loops in them, as well as some vintage fabric I bought at an estate sale a million years ago.  The brown ribbon is actually vintage bias tape, also from estate sale (whatever the hell that is).

I hope you like it!!! Smiley

UPDATE: I just made another last night, still have to do the strap...
