Hi! I discovered this site about a month ago and spent hours reading posts on this board. I usually spend all my creative energy painting, but I had to go off on a tangent and make this adorable purse!! The tutorial was pretty simple to follow...thanks to those of you who posted the tute and all the discussion on the topic! Everything helped me make this first shot a success!

Here's my little purse...definitely not perfect, but not bad for my first ever purse! Let me know what you think! OH...I almost forgot...I'm going to sew on a button for the ribbon loop for a closure. Hoping to hit JoAnn's for either an apple button or a pig one...



I think my next purse will have a little pocket inside.

Love it.  Are you going to put a big piggy button on it for the closure?

Thanks for the kind words! My next door neighbor's daughter wanted one, so I just finished up one for her as well. I stitched a little pocket inside her's for her cell phone. I found cute apple buttons and a semi-cute piggy button at JoAnn's.

I'm amazed at how quickly and easily these purses come together! I love this board!!!

Thanks! I believe it IS an addiction! I hit Wal-Mart yesterday and went nuts on fabric...I'm digging around for another pattern that I like. I've decided today I'm going to try to make soft rollers for my daughters. They are dying to have curly hair! And of course, the curlers will need a bag to be stored in!
