Scrap Bag Purse
It was time for a new purse. I hadn’t purchased a new purse since the movie “The Titanic” came out, when was that 1997? The old leather purse strap is cracked, every time I went out I was worried the strap was going to break. Shopping for a new bag was not really an option, we are always so busy when we make trips to town, there never seemed to be time to look for a new bag. This is where the internet is invaluable to me, I can spend time on line looking for a new bag that I can sew myself and for a model that fits my needs, no rush.
Here is a link to the site where the bag of my sewing dreams was found:
Here is the bag I made from the instructions:
This bag is smaller than the bag from the La Maison Reid site, smaller is better for me. I also added a pocket for little things like lip balm, hand lotion, and a packet of aspirin.
This is a look at the lining fabric, it is a scrap of material left over from a dress I made many years ago.
Total cost for this project, $0.00, everything is from my stash.
Thanks for stopping by, I do enjoy visitors and hope that you will come to see me again.
