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!!
Hi everyone...My name is Lynne and I'm an avid quilter (sounds like a prelude to an AA meeting!). I love both hand quilting and machine, both applique and piecing. I hope to display some of my projects. I also love my cats who I will introduce to you also. My love of audio books is also a bit obsessive, too. I found quilting & housework go much better with a good novel.
