I fell in love with this fabric and had to have it.......then it sat on my fabric stash for months. I couldn't put together in my head what I was going to do with it. Yesterday the vision came to me and I ran with it... then I went overboard.
No patterns used at all. I just winged it.
The purse is quilted? I used silver thread and you can barely see it in the pic. Looks great in person. The wooden handles were on clearance for $.50. Then I gave a shot at making the accessories. I am very happy with how the wallet turned out. I never made one before.

Those are FANTASTIC!!!!!!!  I love the fabric and wish I had a purse like that!  Everything turned out really well - I can't believe you got the handles for 50 cents!!!!  Well done! Smiley

Thanks everybody! I have to get used to carry a purse with a smaller handle now.
I still have a little less then 1/2 yd of the fabric left. Hmmm ,what to do with it now.

Great bag!  I love the wallet!  Was it difficult to make?  Did you use a pattern?

No pattern. I just thought of how a wallet was designed and went with it. I never made one before so I'm pretty happy with myself.
