I made this purse based on the one in the Crafter's Companion.
It was very easy, I made it a little different to the book as I didn't blanket stitch the edges and used the lace trim as the fastening (the buttons are just decorative.



I'm going to give it to my Mum for Mother's Day (next Sunday in the UK).

I'd love to hear what you think of it as it's the first item I've sewn for a long time.

I think it's cute - I love the bright flower fabrics, and the lace is a nice touch. I don't miss the blanket stitch, I think it's great the way it is!

Thank you both.  The more I look at it the more I think, I'll make something else for Mum and keep it for myself!

Aaawww ... come on ... give it to your Mom.

On the other hand, you could tell her you made this one as practice, and you didn't want her to be the guinea pig recipient.

Oh no don't worry, I'll give it to my Mum Smiley  I haven't time to make anything else before Sunday.  Hopefully I'll have time to make myself one some other time.
