I think youre right. This purse DOES look an awful lot like the black moleskin one I made in December. I used that one a lot during the festive season. Then I turned up a purple velvet suit Id cut out but never sewed in the eighties. I dont know when I thought Id wear a velvet skirt and jacket. To a work party? They were all the rage in the pattern magazines at the time. Good thing I didnt make it because now I have it to cut up!

I lined it with burgundy courderoy from a jacket that had not been a success at the time and was partially sewn and deposited in the same box.

I like making these Buttercup purses with a nice long strap to go crosswise across my body because I walk a lot. Blown up to 129% on the copy machine that gives me enough room for the things I take walking: cell phone, ipod, credit cards, a scarf and a little bit more.

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.
