Thanks for the compliments!

 Thanks for the advice about the brads, I ended up having to use large snaps instead.  I just used the top part, and they seem to work fine.  I also used some on the handles, to secure them at the top.  It adds a nice decorative touch, I think(maybe that will draw the eye away from the supporting stitching, lol).  I also made the handles a little longer, I think.  Here are a couple more pictures, finished, showing the snaps I used.  It's not perfect, but it's good enough for me!  I am planning on making another soon for my daughter for our next vacation!  Thanks for looking!

2  My WEEKENDER in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by clkingtx on: April 11, 2009 01:31:44 PM
I am almost done with my weekender, and had to post a picture, since this site was such a motivation to getting it done.  I just have to do the false bottom, I am going to put snaps for the front and back pockets, then sew in the lining.  I am not using feet, since I can't find any.  I might use some large snaps, instead.  I used some clearance fabric from Walmart(not home deco weight), heavy weight interfacing, and premade piping.  I told my husband we would have to take a trip so I can use it!  I think using the thinner material made it way easier to make, as I started cutting it out one day, and could have had it finished completely the next, and with only one broken needle(it needed to be replaced anyway), and no blood spilt(yet).  I am having to improvise with the reinforcement for the bottom, and for the purse feet, so I may not get it completely finished for a couple of days.  Thanks for looking!
Sorry, I am too new to post a picture in here,
How do I add a link to a picture here in the gallery?

Thanks
