Something Quilty-ish

So I made my first purse yesterday.  I've had a slight fear of making one and the purse guru here, aka my friend Lynn, said this one was an easy one to start with.  She was right.  A lot of steps and work but it was easy and fun.

TaDa!  Hubby was upset I got his arm in the pic, to which I ask, how was I not?

I also made a wallet and a Kleenex sleeve to go with it.  This was fun and I love this fabric.  It is not like anything I would normally pick, but there it is.

I am having issues with my blog only allowing me to post one picture at a time.  If I leave and come back I can then do another one.  Can you say irritating?

Anyway, it was fun and I really needed a new purse.  I hate huge bulky purses, This one is big enough with lots of interior pockets.

The pattern is "Towne Purse" by Lazy Girl Designs.

Try it, you'll like it.



  1. Gentrie, This is the first time I've looked at your blog. I love your purse. Where did you find the lovely fabric. Grace K.

  2. Grace, I got that fabric at Firefly. I loved it but didn't know what to do with it. I finally figured it out! Thanks for stopping by.
