Spring is finally here. Hello flowers, warmer weather, and of course allergies. I will take allergies over sub-zero temperatures and snow. Let’s put this image out of our memory for a few months.
To celebrate the arrival of spring I made something for myself. At one of our Indy Modern Quilt Guild meetings earlier this year I won the stash box. Each month someone would win a box full of fabric, notions, patterns, etc that others wanted out of there stash. If you took anything you had to replace it with something from yours.
I found some coordinating fabric, wooden purse handles and lace. Making a purse immediately came to mind. I used this pinned tutorial to make my purse. I’m pretty happy considering the first purse I ever made.
Yesterday was the first day I used the purse and it coordinated with my outfit. I’m going to make another and actually follow the tutorial and make it big enough. I can’t open my purse more than 1.5 inches. OOPS!
