This is the second purse I've ever made. I felt comfortable with the Jordy pattern, so I stuck with it, but made it bigger. I also made the front and back panels with 3 blocks instead of just one piece. Unlike last time, I put a double pocket in. And best of all...I discovered fusible fleece! Oh man! I love this stuff. It stands up so nicely.

Your purse is beautiful!  A great interpretation of the Jordy!  I love it - especially the middle ivory/floral fabric.  Where on earth did you get it?

The remnant section at JoAnn. It's Waverly and I got it for a steal! And the body on those decorator fabrics is so great.

Really nice fabrics. I like that you used three panels on the outside. You did a great job on the construction and should get lots of compliments.

Wow - I just looked it up on the Waverly site and they suggest $33 a yard.  Why must I always have expensive taste?  lol

Awesome bag!! Great fabric choices too!

What size did you cut your fabric?  This looks like a nice sized bag.

The pattern piece I used was 15" X 13" and then 2" squares cut out at the corners. Finished it's about 2" smaller than that piece. It is pretty big. But it's for my sister and she likes bigger bags. She says bigger girls need bigger bags!  Wink

This is a beautiful bag!!  I haven't tried fuseable fleece.  When I tried fuseable interfacing I had trouble with wrinkles, does the fleece do this too?
