Mama's Got a Brand New Purse!

I know that I already used that title (minus the purse part) on my laundry bag post, but nothing else came to me and it got stuck in my head!

Anyway, a couple of weeks ago one of my creative blogs posted a purse with tutorial and pattern. I had been thinking for a while that I needed a new purse and was wanting to make one, so when I saw this I jumped on it.

Since this blog has detailed instructions and a printable pattern, I'm not going to tell how to make it. If you are interested please go visit her site, it's free. It was very easy to understand and was simple enough. I didn't have any problems with making this and I'm very proud of the way it turned out. Of course I'm usually my worst critic, but I did a great job on this.
So, here it is.

Here's a view of inside with the pockets. And yes I carry a tape measure in my purse, you never know when you need one when shopping!
This is to give you an idea of how big it is, I'm about 5'5".

For the outside fabric I used upholstery fabric. For the handle, bow, band and inside I used a lightweight quilting fabric.

I really love how it turned out and am very proud of myself for doing it!
Thanks for looking,
Comments make me Happy!

  1. Oooh! Pretty! :) Love the fabric & the style. It seems like it's a good size too. I've got a tutorial on Pinterest for a wallet. I'm needing a new one really bad, but it's pretty involved, so I've put it off & made things for the boys lately. lol!


Please leave a comment, I'd love to hear from you!
I will respond to questions in the comments, Thanks!
