More from Purse Week

Hi again! I'm really excited that I finished this purse in time to submit it for Purse Week! I slaved away all day, and this is what I've come up with.

...I know... I'm still all about the yellow and gray. I'll never get over it.

This is by far the most detailed bag I've ever made.  I used the flower motif from the print on the inside and embroidered it on the outside pocket.
That took quite a while. But time passes quickly when you've got the "Disney Song and Story" channel on Pandora. Seriously, it's like A Whole New World. Literally.
Anyway, I'm in love with the inside fabric. I got a tablecloth and a bunch of cloth napkins on clearance from Target awhile back, and I can't stop using them! It's from the Dwell collection, and I hope I can find more online because I'm almost out.
This zipper was pretty time-consuming... not just installing it, but figuring out the logistics of how it would work. I made a few sketches, measured endlessly, and finally made it happen. And now that I have it all figured out, they will be a breeze in the future!
I also lined the front pockets with the Dwell fabric. They are nice and big for all my junk.
Alright, I'm heading over to enter this puppy in the Flickr Group. Wish me luck...
Hope you have a nice weekend. I'll be breaking in my new bag!


  1. Hi, just going through the purses from purse week. I love your purse. I can't believe that is from a tablecloth and napkins! Now I wanna go to Target.
    Anyway, I love it and I wish you would do some kind of tutorial. The shape and size of the bag is perfect!

  2. That is BEAUTIFUL! The embroidery is gorgeous, and I love the fabrics you used! Wow. I am blown away!

  3. Just found your blog thru Google looking for tutorial on bolster pillow - thanks, great tute! I also love your bag for your "baby"! Glad I found you.
