Well, I completed a couple of purses from my remnant finds last week! They were really fun, and I'm ready to make some more!
This one is big and roomy, and I think it's my favorite! The handles are made from curtain tie-backs, and they were $1 each. A big package of these shell buttons were .50 cents, and I spent about .75 cents on the exterior fabric! The lining was a couple of bucks, and the magnetic snap was $1.25, so this purse was put together really inexpensively!
This bag was missing something when it was done, so I scrounged through my "goodies" and found this mis-matched vintage clip on earring that I'd picked up at a junk shop, pried off the clip-on back and glued on a pin back, and pinned it on. These bags both sewed up in a short afternoon, and I'd highly recommend the patterns (shown on my post below from last week).
Last night I finished a book that I would HIGHLY recommend! I ran across a blog that I couldn't get enough of, so I had to order the newly released book. If you haven't check out NieNie Dialogs, you need to! Stephanie Nielson is courageous, inspiring, crafty, and amazing! Here's her new book. Read a review and purchase it here.
