I made my first purse today with what I had laying about, with the exception of the lining fabric which screamed at me from the fabric section all the way in the back from the second that I walked through WalMart's doors. It sat on my craft table for a couple of days before this project came to me. Maybe my daughter was using mind control on this one. LOL

I made the flowers last night while she was awake and used nap time today to finish up the purse. In all, I think the flowers actually took longer than cutting and sewing the purse. I'm thinking about adding some pearls along the seam on the front flap or maybe some quick embroidery. That visible seam bugs the heck out of me.

Anyway, here are the pics...

The color isn't quite right in this one. It's actually a very light lilac, not blue toned.

And for the lining that called to me...
