Ok so just finsihed this purse and of course had to post it on here (first actual post)
I originally bought this fabric ot make a dress but never did so i made a purse



inside pocket such a pain forgot to sew it on at the right time and had to do it by hand  Roll Eyes


I did not actually sew the fabric together but it sure looks like I did

That looks great! I love the fabric. Not too sure about the stiffness, hopefully someone else will be able to help with that!

looks great love that style. It should soften up as you use it.

Great purse!  Have you tried washing it yet?  That, and use, will help with the stiffness.

Looks really good!  Could you maybe soak it in fabric softener for a while, and then wash it?  That's what my sis does to make crocheted scarfs nice and soft.
