don't worry...I still quilt
It seems as if I am on a purse making frenzy, but I am really not. They are just so much quicker to start and finish than a quilt. So that's why I whip one out every few days...just to have something to blog about. (I wish I were only half kidding!)
This is a purse pattern that I drafted. The final one was here. So this is the final final draft. I love how it turned out. Having beautiful fabric in paisley and stripes helps a lot too. It is lined with interfacing (which I dislike) so the next time I try this purse most of the pieces will be quilted. And I plan to make one exactly like this one for me. (That is my friend in the photo...and it is her purse. She bought the fabric...isn't it perfect?)
It is my dear friend Amy Jo's birthday today, so if you have a minute why don't you stop over to her blog and wish her a happy birthday? I know she would appreciate it. :)

I love the purse. The fabrics are beautiful. I hope that your friend enjoys it.
Very nice purse. I like the fabrics and the color choice.
Love the purse and the fabrics. So professional and beautiful! Your friend must love you :)
have a great weekend!
More paisley! Love it.
I love the purse! Now I'm thinking I need a new one! Maybe tomorrow :)
I love the fabric combo! You had me wondering where the blonde hair came from for a minute there!! I thought maybe Wisconsin had gotten to you already!! ;)
Great purse -- I love the fabrics!
That is ultra cute.
Great fabrics and lovely design! I'm always happy to see what you sew - purses, quilts and whatever else your heart chooses. You make such beautiful things.
Love your bag design. It's a great shape.
My goodness, woman! You whip one out every few days?!? Where is your cape? You have superhuman powers!
i seem to be making cushion covers at the moment rather than quilts - as long as i'm sewing something i'm happy.
Love the bag! The wider strap looks like it hugs the shoulder and would stay up there better. I've been a huge knitter, but love the instant gratification of sewing. Thanks for sharing
mouth hanging open!
you rock!!! i love that bag!!!
What a cute purse! Love the pattern you made! (Sometimes I make things just so I have something to blog about too:)
