A New Purse for me…


new purse
Hi there!  I thought it was about time I shared a sewing project I completed a while ago but have not shared yet.  I LOVE purses and I LOVE LOVE LOVE that now I can find a purse style I LOVE and fabric I LOVE and make a purse I LOVE!  I found this purse on Skip To My Lou and it’s called the One Hour Bag but if I recall correctly, it took me a bout two but that’s o.k.!   It was fun to make and these are fabrics I found at my local Hancock fabrics pretty reasonably!  I wish I could remember how much they cost but I don’t since it’s been a while, all I know is I did find them in the clearance section! 
button strap detail
Here is the strap and button detailing on the sides.  I covered my own button, it’s so easy and fun to coordinate your creations that way.  I didn’t end up using that yellow fabric anywhere on the bag other than the button though since this just called for 2 fabrics.  Oh well.  Still think it’s cute.
inside pocket
Lastly, here is a view of the inside pocket where I keep my keys so they are easy to grab!  Maybe next time I will try my hand at am inside pocket where I found this awesome tutorial and pinned it for future reference.
I am currently working on a lot of projects and at the top of my to do list is to get some of my hand sewn creations on here for sale!  I just have to have several hours to devote to putting up TABS on my blog, get registered for a paypal button and list the creations I have ready to sell.  Be looking for it soon! 
Thanks for stopping by and hope you’re having a great weekend!!
