A young woman I love very much, just got engaged and I made her this darling purse. Although she can use it for any kind of outing, it reminds me of something a newly engaged woman might carry to a girls luncheon celebrating her engagement in 1962. I was a little girl then and I had plenty of bride paper dolls from that era. Lots of other fashion paper dolls as well. I loved paper dolls!



I used a pattern from a library book. I could find that book title if youre really interested . The fabric is a white damask from Joannes home dec section. The handle is a home dec cord. Its lined with a pale yellow lining fabric and also has a layer of quilt batting. The sparkly blue button is also from Joannes. Isnt it darling?

I did not make a closure. It falls closed naturally, but it could use a snap.

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

That button is fantastic. I'm sure she'll appreciate the wonderful gift.
