I don't know how this happenedI love patchwork. I've been piecing together fabric scraps since 7th grade. However, usually I made silly, bubbly bags which many people would love to carry, but which are more cheery than stylish. I love cheery. However, I was sewing as usual, but I decided to stick to all red fabrics(I almost managed it) and try out a new purse style. Then I didn't feel like making a handle, so I added a pre-made one. And it turned out nice. So nice I almost don't know what to do with it. I don't carry fancy purses. But I will stop writing now and show you pictures.

Thank you for reading! Questions and comments are beloved!

I LOVE personal swaps! If you see something I made that you like, and have anything fun or interesting or silly, tell me.

I love this purse! I am a big fan of the colors, and I adore pretty much everything patchwork. You did a great job!

Wow, that is very beautiful!  Love the patchwork, and the shape of the bag!  Looks great!

That's a lovely bag!  I really like the colors you used.  Definitely stylish!

Why can't you carry that?  It's really really cute but I think in a casual way...  It would look great with jeans, a t-shirt, and flip flops... or a summer dress... Just in time too!  Lovely, lovely....
