Well I finally got up the nerve to post one of the purses I've made. I made this about a month ago. Usually I like a shoulder strap but had this idea floating around in my head and gave it a try. I'm kinda liking the smaller size, not as much room in there to stuff a bunch of junk so I can actually find my stuff when I need it. (Don't you hate that! You know it's in there you just can't ever find it!)
Any whoo! I got the fabric at Big Lot's a 2 yrd piece for $5. I also got a lime green in the same pattern. It remains uncut as of yet. I tried to match the pattern so the font and back are the same and the top inside and out are the same with just a scrap of beige for the lining.

Thank You Smittenheart Smiley
Maybe I won't be so chicken to post again if I could just get to start sewing again. I just had surgery on my right shoulder and I can't use it yet at all so I'm doing everything one handed. It stinks all this time off of work and I can't even sew Cry. Got 3 more weeks in a sling then who knows how much therapy.
That's what you get for still trying to play softball in your 40's. So all I can do is look at all the pretty things people make on here and wish.
Thanks again, it is very much appreciated.

Adorable! I have that fabric from Big Lots in black/cream, lime/cream and red/cream. All sitting there in a pile...waiting....waiting...for the great procrastinator! How much fabric did your purse actually take? Smiley Oh, and 40's are the new 20's....LOL!

Very cute purse. I love that fabric. I haven't been to Big Lots in a long time. I didn't know they sold fabric.

Lovely bag!  I had that surgery too, I feel your pain.  Take heart, after your therapy it will be as good as new, and you can sew up a storm!!  Best wishes for a speedy recovery.

It only took about 1/2 yard of the outside fabric give or take alittle because of trying to match patterns. It measures 12"L x 6"H x 4"W.
