I haven’t had much time this month to work on my quilts and I didn’t have my February OPAM done yet, so I figured now was the perfect time to work on a small project I’ve been wanting to try. The question was, which project?! I saw this cute purse on the Moda Bake Shop and figured I’d give it a try!
I decided to use the Sonnet Charm pack, with green and cream as one color way and brown and teal as the other:
I had some peltex, and figured I’d use that instead of batting to make it a little stiffer. That was a mistake. It was quite difficult to maneuver the bag with it being as stiff as it was. If I make this bag again, I’ll use batting.
Here I have the two color ways sewn together:
Once I finally got the pieces to fit together as close as possible, I sewed the two color ways together:
Add some handles and we have a completed purse!
It looks much better in the picture than it does in person! Oh, and don’t flip it inside out, even though it’s reversible, because the brown and teal bottom did not sew together well!
