Spring Purse

I sewed a springy purse for myself this week. First I made a pattern onto brown kraft paper, drawing and measuring along the way. Then I cut out the pattern and fabric. The exterior fabric is like this with a yellow button over the snap closure.
I used some of my matching beads to add a little trim at the top of the purse. Its likely I'll sew more on one night while I'm sitting watching TV.













and the interior looks like this with a pocket





I cut some of the fabrics for the exterior and lining of the bag to make













a coordinating flower that I learned to make here














Then I sewed it on the side of the bag like this and voila a Judi original. The last time I made one of these flowers I glued a brooche pin to the back and I was able to remove it and wear it to coordinate the bag.
I also made a green bead and silver necklace but I'll show that to you another time.
Thats my show and tell for today... have a lovely day.... Judi xoxo

Oh, how cute that bag is! You are so creative, and I love seeing what you'll do next. Love the idea of the pin on the back of the fabric flower, so you can wear it on your outfit to match your bag. laurie
