"I swear by my pretty floral bonnet..."

These purses are made from vintage fabric (at least, I'm assuming it's vintage fabric since it was purchased at an estate sale and seems to be!) with pseudo-vintage patterns from Emma Brennan's book Making Vintage Bags (just to give credit!). I made them for my mother for her upcoming birthday.

Please excuse the strange colors, I took these photos late at night and the fabric is somewhat shiny.


Marker for scale. It's a very large clutch. The bow is supposed to be velvet, but I didn't have velvet and actually had trouble finding some. Tongue




The opening to the purse is rather small! The instructions said it would be small, but I was still surprised.  Cheesy

Thanks for looking! Smiley

Great job! I love the big bows and that fabric seems perfect for vintage looking purses. She'll love them!

Thank you! I'm quite partial to the giant bow myself. Cheesy
