I feel like I made my first purse really fast and then everything just sort of died off as far as my sewing. I really want to get the Sunburst Sling purse done, or at least started. I saw some fabric on Etsy that I am not obsessed with for this pattern but it would be kind of expensive so I wanted to do a trial run with some fun fabrics to test it all out. At the fabric store today I found some cute Halloween fabrics on sale and snatched them up. The solid color is actually a rich purple but the color came out more blue with my camera.
 And a quick confession, I am technically color blind so coordinating fabrics can be a bit rough for me. Especially this many! I can see all colors but each of my eyes sees a color differently. The lady at the fabric store assured me these do in fact coordinate (my Mom usually double checks me).
 My kitty picked his favorite one too.  Roll Eyes

 I plan to try to have it cut out this weekend but it will be a slow process. Not sure when I will get time to actually add the  interfacing or sew. Bare with me.

They coordinate well together, no strange color-combo's as far as I can see!
I especially like the Frankenstein-monsters and the aliens! They're so fun!

Are you going to use all the fabrics in one bag? That sounds like I think that is very weird, but that's not what I mean. I'm just thinking that it would so much sewing using all those different fabrics, that's all  Wink

You got a bag finished. I didn't get any further than the cutting I did about 3 weeks ago!!
And I am tempted to join the showcase your talent bag, but I'm not impressed with what it looks like at this moment...  Undecided

 All the fabrics go on one bag. I think I am going to head over to another fabric store today and see if I can find one more fabric. I want a polka dot or something like that I think. The purse is a sort of patchwork-ish bag. Here is a pic..

 Lots of fabrics and patterns. I really have another set of fabrics in mind but I wanted to see how this was going to turn out. It's for an intermediate sewer and I am (in my mind) a beginner. If this was a perfect world I would have time to make one of these for my sister too. I have so many purses I want to make!!!! LOL!

Those fabrics will be perfect for that purse!  I love patchwork purses the most...I think you will do just fine with the pattern...

I still have not even cut out my fabric...just no purse mojo this month! Maybe when it warms up and I need a spring purse...Cheesy

that is a pretty bag, gozer! I wouldn't start it, because I dislike all that cutting  Roll Eyes ! Haha  Smiley

AIMR I'm sure the purse-mojo will hit you when Spring comes! (I know that Spring is already begun, but they forgot to mention that to mother Nature)
Sending you some warm thoughts, maybe that helps?!  Cheesy
