A New Purse (Commissioned by Joann)
July 16, 2013
My friend Joann asked me to make her a new purse a few weeks back, and we made a trip to Joann’s fabric store to pick out what we needed. It took a while, but finally decisions were made and we had four fun fabrics, two for each side of the purse. Of course it took me way longer than it should have to get it down because of a multitude of things going wrong (bobbin not winding correctly and continuously breaking, I sewed a few pieces together backwards… )but its finally done and it turned out really cute!
Depending which side is out, and which way its turned, its like having four purses in one! There are four pockets, two inside and two outside, and there’s enough room inside to hold quite a bit of stuff without being a monster. I have one of these I made for myself that I use most of the time and I love it even after a few years. Its also completely reversible.
If you’d like to make your own version of this purse yourself, just let me know! You can buy a copy of the pattern for $5.00. You’ll need a printer to print the pages (standard letter size) and some tape to stick the pieces together, but its super easy! You can also buy this one already made form my shop, or this one, which is just a little bit different.
