My friend Whitney made this adorable purse and I wanted one, just like it.
I bought the pattern and she graciously offered to make me it for me. I wanted the same fabric and everything. But, when I went to my favorite quilt shop, they didn’t have enough of the lining fabric. So I picked out some different fabric equally as cute. But I did get a fat quarter of the lining fabric. You know, just so I could look at it.
Then I came across this pattern on made-by-rae.blogspot.com. With my limited sewing experience, I was a little worried about making it, but it seemed simple enough. The best part, it only used 2 fat quarters of fabric. So I gave it a go and this is what I made.
I am really happy with how it turned out, it’s the perfect size for me. I think when I make it again, I will put interfacing in the strap and on the lining. But it was really easy to make and it should tide me over until Whitney gets mine done!
