Woohoo…I finally got my bag done! AND…it just yells Spring! I used the Wildflowers Jelly Roll to make the small jelly roll bag.
I stitched in the ditch with a green variegated thread which blended in well with the flowers! However, I almost ran out of thread when quilting the body. It was my lucky day though because I had jussst enough to finish it off!
I cut out some coordinating fabric for the lining:
Then I used some left over strips from the jelly roll for the handles:
The body of the purse was easy to put together. I like how the green fabric (some of my favorite fabric ever! but I can’t remember the name of it) looks like grass.
The lining gave me a little bit of trouble. Ok, so the trouble was really just me not paying attention. I sewed the pockets on wrong and folded it wrong way at first. It was a long day and I wasn’t paying attention. So, I ripped it all out and redid it the next day. To my delight, I had no problems the second go ’round!
I stitched the lining into the purse and it was time to add the grommets. There was something satisfying about seeing these little grommets go together with a snap and make it look nice and crisp!
Add some handles and Waaallaa!! A beautiful purse for Spring!
I’m using it today…and I must say I love the size of it! I have plenty of room for all of my junk that eventually finds its way into my purse!
