This is a little purse that I made myself last summer - it is just the right size for my credit card wallet...if I had a cell phone it would be great for a phone bag.



This little purse is a gift for my SIL. I am very pleased with it. I modified the above pattern slightly and the modifications worked out well...




A friend of mine saw the celtic knot purse wanted to buy some purses as gifts for the grand-daughters. This and that occured and I am making them as a gift for my friend to regift for the grands.

I am glad I am making them as a gift as I would feel guilty making money off them. I struggled in the making of them. For some reason the fabric had a mine of its own - I pulled out stitches in both of them - and I hate to rip seams - I avoid it at all costs. The orange one had more seam ripping than I've done in the past year. Then my sewing machine got balky and the clothe's line cord really was a bit too bulky. I feel bad that I struggled with them when the other two purses were so easy.

I love the fabric and the buttons I used on them though. I hope the grands like them.

You feel guilty making money? Why?

Unless you're ripping off someone's pattern, or including heroin in every purchase, making money is GOOD.

BTW, did you attach the chain with the buttons on the top example? VERY clever!
