One of my coworkers bought these wool skirts before Christmas so I could make purses for her. Joy.

I finally got around to making them last night.

Those are very nice but I'd tell your co-worker where she can shove her bloody wool skirts, to be perfectly honest - that is, unless she paid for them, which I can only assume she didn't Tongue

All in all, very good work, super talented Smiley

I am interested in personal swaps, PM me Smiley

Would be willing to swap nearly anything for 30's-50's women's dress patterns, waist 26"

You did a great job on the purses!

Don't you just love it when non-crafters assume that since we are capable of crafting, we must want to make things for others.  They don't realize the effort that is necessary to make our creations.  Hopefully she really appreciates the work that you put into the purses - I know I would if I were her.

Nice job again!

Very clever idea.  I especially like the brown one.

I always tell people I have a very long waiting list.  And I do, even if it's comprised mostly of my own unfinished projects.

Since these skirts are wool, did you end up washing them at all before sewing them?  I have a ton of old skirts that I'd love to repurpose into something else.

I make stylish and practical items for Babies and Mamas
