"Gimme your {CUTE} purse!"


I made another purse about a month ago. Again, the pattern is available for free HERE, and I think it's the best purse in the world. There are so many fun fabrics out there that you can showcase, which turns a purse into a super cute and trendy statement. This purse is the 4th or 5th I have made from this pattern. I love it. I made it for my friend Lolly, in exchange for one of her gorgeous necklaces!!


I made four pockets on the inside (instead of two) using the outside print material, just to make it pop out more. I also made a simple little wallet with some extra material.


So if you haven't tried to make this purse yet...what are you waiting for?

You are right it is gorgeous!! I LOVE sewing too but here in the 'ars-end' of Africa...finding cute fabric is near impossible...I have stashed the pattern tho' just in case I come across a piece that I can use.

You are very domesticated sweetness!! worth your weight in gold I'd say with certainty :o) :o)

Some sewing skills to spontaneously burst out of me. Hmmm, maybe that won't happen. But it is good to have a friend who inspires in me the desire to actually, maybe, learn for myself!

Shaina, you are so talented! And becoming quite the seamstress. I wish you lived closer - we could have sewing nights together :)

Very cute, Shaina!
I have SO many other projects I'm doing to stop and make a purse. {But I wanna!}

Rebecca said...

I'll have to try this sometime...or better yet, maybe I'll send the pattern to my mom and make it try it!

I NEED a new purse bad.. I'm using a hand me down. of a hand me down from a yardsale.. I mean it IS a Gap purse and all.. but I really NEED a new one... and I'm sewing challenged... out of all the crafts.. sewing challenges me!!

Megan said...

I too want you to come show me step by step! I craft better with friends around. Either that or I'll follow Rebecca's example and have my mom make it for me. One of these days I'll break out my sewing machine and make something cute though. I think I need to find a cute scripture bag to make. Have you got any cute patterns for that?
