Cute purse!  Looks like it would be a great purse for the 4th of July and other patriotic holidays!

Also, just love the closure on the clutch...it is a different way to keep the envelope part closed...have to put that in my "good ideas" book!

Yeah, I like it..  I have to secure with rivets as my machine couldn't handle sewing it on.. (there two layers of a cardstock like paper)

This is a purse I did with same idea.  (My own design/pattern Done in Feb) I like the shape of the flap better than the envelope one as it seems to hold better in the band.

Sorry about the water heater but your purse is cute!

Thank you it is a good size.
After the plumbers came and gave me a new water heater and install quote of a thousand dollars, my son thought he was gonna have to restart my heart with jumper cables, I lost my sewing vibe. Luckily I have a buddy who occasionally dabbles ni home repair he was able to do it for 550.00 and a pan of lasagna. Having no hot water with a four month old baby and I am alos a germaphobe is a nightmare! How do people live without plumbing?

Hax- great idea with the rivets.   The envelope style adds visual interest.  I love the color blocking on the purse you previously did.
Diesels_Mom, Your purse is great.  Glad you were able to get your water heater up and going again.  One of those items of life that I don't even consider a luxury- just a fact of life.  Until you don't have it and then I remember lots of people don't have water heaters and indoor plumbing.  I sew fabric menstrual pads for Days for Girls- a charity that supplies teen girls in third world countries reusable kits so they can keep going to school during their cycle-  Washing and drying is all done by hand and even hanging their items out to dry can be problematic and difficult.  Thank goodness for the modern conveniences we have.

Hax, I like your envelope bag. It is very nice. Great idea to use rivets, looks good!

Diesels_Mom: I so love the fabric of your bag, very pretty!! And I'm glad you got your water heater fixed  Smiley

I didn't get anything done, still have to buy interfacing  Sad
And I received the latest edition of "Sewing World" today with such cute, small totes with bunting and a very pretty clutch!


Not the best pic, but it is dark here so this is the best I can do now!

That sounds like a worthwhile cause, do you have a link? Maybe I can contribute some sewing or even fabric. i have tons of flannel left over from sewing my Grandsons layette.

That little bag is so cute, wendiek!

I think we take a lot of things for granted...sometimes a reminder in the way of some inconvenience sneaks up on us and makes a point!  Glad you got your water heater fixed!  I spent a few months where even finding a way to heat water with a fire was an issue...I swore i would never take a hot shower for granted ever again! Cheesy
