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.
