Sew Fun!

I had started this quilt within the last couple of weeks and just finished it up yesterday morning. All of the rag quilts I've made have been pastels, so the bright colors were a nice change. All fabric was purchased at JoAnn's.

My next little project, which actually went very quickly, was this handbag. I had purchased part of the fabric (the starburst pattern and the brown that was used for lining) knowing that I wanted to make a purse. The next week when the JoAnn ad came out, it showed this handbag using the same colors I had already purchased along with three other prints. Luckily, I hadn't started making my purse yet. They referenced the book that was used for this particular bag (Bag Boutique: Making Fabulous Purses and Totes by Amy Barickman) in the ad, so I jumped on Amazon and ordered it. While I was waiting for my book to arrive, I went back to JoAnn's to get the rest of the fabric prints I needed to complete the bag. I started it yesterday afternoon around 3:30 pm and was finished shortly after 7 pm. It turned out SUPER-DUPER cute. It measures 7 inches tall, 11 inches wide, and 3 inches deep - the perfect size for all the stuff I tote around on a daily basis. I LOVED making it, so there may be many more to come! Toodles!
