Well, instead of lurking, I thought that it was finally time to post some of my work. As part of my summer vacation, I decided to work on sewing some purses.
The red bag is made from some home dec fabric that I have had for years using Simplicity 8331. The purple purse is made from the FAHbulous "Feeling Groovy" fabric by Michael Miller, using the Amy Butler Madison bag pattern.
I cannot tell a lie. Yes, I took this picture in the restroom right before I gave the purse to its new owner at a restaurant.
A view from the top, showing the tab and a magnetic snap. You can't tell from the photo, but the interior has only one pocket. The lining has only one interior pocket per the request of the new owner. Personally, I like to have more pockets, but...
So, this picture is a little blurry, but the color is more accurate...
...and this picture is sharper, but the color is off. <sigh>
Ah, well. I had fun making them, and I LOVE the Madison - I kept it for myself!
