my first purse!

My $3 fabric!

I really didn't think I would get a whole purse done in an afternoon. I'm still a little shocked. Since I was finished, I couldn't wait to post these pictures! I'm pretty proud of myself for how well this came out. I definitely learn things though; when I snap it closed, it doesn't lay flat, etc. oh well. This was also my first time using fusible interfacing; I don't know why I was so nervous, it was so easy and it definitely gave the purse structure. Anyway, after completing my purse I decided to have a little photo shoot...I know, I'm a nerd.

Thanks Anne. Hopefully it's just the first of many. :)

Nice job! My first purse was also inspired by some bargain fabric :)

Thanks Kristen. I love bargains, especially when it comes to sewing. It's becoming one expensive hobby. :)
