Purse Parade

I had big, big plans to have a new purse made by now. I have everything I need to start, except time. Sometimes we have do to the things that pays the bills, right?

And the weather has been glorious lately, so I've been spending what spare time I do have working in the yard.

Since I wanted to participate in Pink Postcard's Purse Party anyway, I'm going to dust off last year's purse project.

The purse pattern is Amy Butler's Sweet Harmony Handbag.  The main fabric is Moda's Oz by Sanae.  I love the cell pocket.

Since I chickened out on the option for the interior zipper pocket, I made this little case to tuck away items of a more personal nature.

Here's another purse I made using a pattern I developed myself.

I love the interior fabric.  I found it in a fabric store when I was out of town visiting some relatives, so I bought it without knowing how I'd use it.  When I returned home, I found some striped fabric in my stash and loved how they complemented each other.

Here's another favorite.  I made eight of these for a bridal party.  And I made one for myself because I loved the bride's choice of colors.  It's hard to tell from the picture, but the interior is lined with celery green.  So pretty!

The forecast calls for rain and temperatures in the 40s later this week, so hopefully I get my new bag completed.  In the meantime, you can find me in the garden.
