My Weekend was All About Purses


36/365 States Purse

One of the reasons I wanted a sewing machine was to make purses.  I love purses — they have such personality and they still fit even if your weight fluctuates.  This was my first attempt at a sewn purse.  It has mistakes, but I learned a few construction techniques and overall I’m very happy with it.  The fabric even makes me happy, seeing the states all mixed up makes me think my friends across the country aren’t so far away as they sometimes seem.

My second purse was made for my sister in law Alison who’s learning to play guitar.  I saw this fabric and knew I’d be making her a purse.

37/365 A Purse for Alison

The interior is a coordinating print.  I love the happy colors!

I hope she’ll like it!  I’ve started on my next purse already.  This is kind of addictive.  :)
