A CHANGE OF PACE...

I decided to make myself a new purse using the Snap Happy II pattern by Stitchin' Sisters.  I used Moda Frolic by Sandy Gervais and just love the fun look!  I did add handles which are not in the pattern.but I don't trust myself to put a purse down anywhere!  I don't remember where  I saw this pattern first, but I figure I had to try a pattern that used carpenter's retractable metal ruler tape as it's closure.  Well, it REALLY works and it was pretty easy to make. 
Then, on another day I was surfing the web looking for purse handle ideas I came across a blog that had this:
This is a pair of infant overalls...cut off the legs...sew up the bottom...and 5 minutes later: Instant purse!
It even has a tab for keys!!


Now how cool is that!

Your new purses are great - I love the one you made and I will be asking my daughter to keep a pair overalls when grandie grows out of them! Hugz

Both purses are very cool! Love all your quilts too, especially the latest small one. Just love your kitty photos too. What sweeties.
