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!
