I made these items for the recent Alice in Craftsterland Swap.  Where I live, Vera Bradley is the reigning purse queen, so I was inspired by the way her designs have a gazillion matching pieces.

First, we have the purse. To make the body of the purse I used the April bag tutorial on sewmamasew.  The hardware was an amazing thrift store find!  It easily comes apart, so I removed the ugly bag that was on it and reused it for this one.  I am in love with the kiss locks lately(I bought myself a Vera Bradley just because I love the kiss lock on it). 

The inside of the bag.  I am really proud of my interior zipper. 

Second--A coin purse--another kiss lock!  I didn't know you could make these until I found a frame at a quilting store.  I added the charm.

Third--A wallet from an online tutorial. It folds in half like a billfold.

Fourth-A tissue holder-I put hankies in it.  The inside fabric is the red that is on the inside of the purse.

And last, but not least, a key thingy.  I've been making these for all my friends at work, so easy and so cute.

I also did a small calender where I inserted the butterfly fabric into a clear sleeve, but I forgot to upload those pics.

Thanks for looking!
