Here it is! My new favorite purse!
I finally made my selvage project and now I want to make MORE MORE MORE!!
The really awesome thing is, this purse goes with everything!
I had so much fun remembering which fabrics gave me which selvages too!
Women who sew look at it for a minute and then they either thing it's really cool or they say something to the effect of "are you nuts?" or "I think you need a life"
But I've even gotten compliments from people who don't sew.
Like the other day, the very well dressed gentleman at the photo lab commented on what an interesting handbag I have.
I lined it with black and white polka dots to extend the dotty them inside.
I did decide once I had the selvages sewn together on my base fabric, that I am going to use some interfacing on the next one. I had a very wonky square that I needed to trim up before I could make the bag.
oh and since it's July Fourth I'll stick a little fireworks in here.................
