I worked on this purse all day yesterday and it's finally done! I made it from some fabric that my Husband's Grandmother got me. I have no idea what kind of fabric it is but I really like it!

I think my purse sewing skills are getting better maybe. People keep asking how much I'm going to charge for it but I have no idea. I kinda like it, but I have a million purses already.

Tell me what you think. I can always use some good tips and hints!

Thanks for looking!


I think my lining is too loose.

This is turned inside out to show the other pocket.

That's cute!   

I've found that using interfacing on the lining helps A LOT.  And also sewing it just a little bit smaller  - my linings used to be loose and not "fit" very tight.  Since I've been sewing the lining just a tad smaller, it works a lot better.  Just a couple hints.  It's really trial and error - that's what's so fun!!!
