Matching purse

Christina, since you encouraged me to make the purse. . .here are pictures!

It is just a little bit bigger than another purse of mine, and the size is absolutely perfect. There’s more than enough room for my organizer and my wallet, and it’s big enough to get things out without taking everything else out first. There’s also enough room for my coupon book when I go grocery shopping.

I just love how the organizer looks like part of the purse. If you noticed, my keys are clipped right to the strap. There’s a small key ring that I slipped onto the handle, and I just clip my keys right to that. The clip is just a cheap clip that I bought from the hardware store, but it really makes my life easier not having to look for misplaced keys.

And no Sara, you can’t have it. *grin*

  1. Thanks, Christina!

    It really wasn’t that difficult. Well, this one was a tiny bit more, because of the different fabrics in it, but not too bad.

    I would explain it for you, but I came across a tutorial the other day that does a much better job than I would at explaining things. It’s at creative little daisy. I don’t know a whole lot about her blog, but her purse instructions are good.

    The hardest thing for me is the handle – but that’s mostly because I never cut the strap wide enough to start with, and then end up fumbling with a tiny narrow piece of fabric.

    I’ve seen the dresses you and Ally have made – and it looks like you’d have no problems making a purse.

    Have fun!

  2. OH! I love it!
    You did a wonderful job!
    I haven’t ‘braved’ making a purse, yet.
    Was it too difficult?
    I love your keyring idea. How clever!

    Thanks for sharing the photos.
    It turned out so great.

    Thank you, too, for wishing Ally a Happy Birthday. We really did have a wonderful time together today. I love those moments of creating memories.

    Enjoy the rest of your week.

  3. Lol, me and Sara were both reading this at the same time, and by the time we got down to the pictures, she said she wanted one, and once you got down here she would have to borrow. Then, we read the part where you said she couldn’t have it, and a I about died laughing!

  4. Nice try, Sara! *grin*

    Heather, it was the Melody’s Specialty Pattern number #2446. . . .

    Nah, I just made it up as I went along. The first couple I tried to make didn’t turn out very well, so it was nice to actually like this one. I have a purse that’s made similar to this one, so I just looked at it and made mine similar to it. I did make some changes though, especially since the other purse was too small.
