:)Just wanted to say HI and introduce myself. I am Nicole. I live in AZ. I have 4 kids. I love crafts. mostly clothes, quilts, crochet, and lately purses! Any ideas how to start making purses? I just don't know where to begin. I need to start with something basic yet functional. Something that is not too big. you know, purse size. not tote bag necessarily. any ideas? any free patterns out there? maybe velcro closure or button, not ready to attempt zippers yet. nice to be here!
