new craft.

I know. It has been forever since I put up much of anything, but I did have reason to procrastinate this weekend, so I made a purse. Vivienne gave me this wonderful book for the holidays and I put it to good use the night I got it. My good friend Natercia was kind enough to model it for me.

I used some echino japanese import fabric, which may not have been the best choice for my first go at the pattern, but I think the purse looks pretty good.

Here is a little close up. It has a magnetic snap to close it up. There isn't any interfacing in the purse, but it is actually pretty sturdy without it.

CUTE!! That fabric is super awesome. And it's pretty canvas-like so I imagine it's sturdy without interfacing. I like Natercia's modeling. Is the purse for you or her?

It is pretty sturdy even without the interfacing. You are right! The purse is for me, I just wanted her to model it because I was in gym attire and it went better with her outfit. And she is super photogenic.

Long time no post... Good to see you're OK.
Sewing is a lifetime skill. Wish I'd taken my mothers attempts (30 years ago) to teach me more seriously.
