So I made a purse for the first time ever. It's the Pleatness bag we all love so much, with a few mods to suit my purposes.

The Purse...It's topstitched all around. I'm really proud of that. Extra reinforcement for girls who carry their lives in their purses.  Grin


Cutie heart that I appliqud on cause it's for a contest where ya gotta use hearts.


I had to use pink cause I ran out of white.  Angry


Then decided to make a card wallet for good measure. :gooby

I love your fabric choices. Your bag and little wallet came out great. Can't believe this is your first bag!

hahaha Yeah, I probably took on too much for my first try. But I slammed another out in about an hour last night. The pattern seems so much harder than it actually is!





And my wallets are getting more complicated.

Have you put it under its own heading, so everyone can see how great it is?
hate for it to get lost in the posts

I might do that. I just hate spamming a million threads, especially since I'm still sewing and will want to post more. HAHAHAH

I think I'll wait a little while until I at least get the whole set from that fabric I'm making a friend.
