Back in July, I posted a new purse
I had sewn which I loved (still do!). A friend of mine saw it and thought it was fantastic, and asked me to make her one. Since she offered to buy the fabric and hardware, I said sure. Little did I know the little imp had mischief in mind. She thinks my color palette is boring, too neutral, and that I should shake things up more. Like her.
So she bought 4 different red fabrics, silver hardware, and zippers in - get this - orange, turquoise, and lavender.
She wanted it to be a hideous mess.
She was shocked when I gave her something coordinated. She loves it, and shows it off constantly. I will probably be getting more orders for these through her.
Behold, the Challenge Triple purse:
the big one (orange):
the middle one (lavender):
the small one (turquoise), with the other two behind:
On the hip of the happy owner:
A new detail I added to this one, that I thought of after posting my first one, is a second strap. You can see it hanging in the last pic. It's a wristlet type strap, which can be used (obviously) as a wristlet strap, but also as a way to hang up whatever bags you aren't using at any given time.
I am loving making these bags, and I am hoping somewhere there are people who are going to be loving buying them, so I have started another:
bwahahaha! Who's boring, now?!?!?!
