I decided to just hit you with it all at once!
There it is again! The purse I made!
Entirely my own creation!
Purple wool exterior.
Lined in purple printed cotton.
(I didn't make those, but I did buy them and attach them!)
Removable flower pin.
I wanted something structured, so I used a firm interfacing to give it body. This baby stands up! ... you know, if the weighty handles didn't pull it over. But it's seriously structured!
...AND going to a good cause!
I made this for an upcoming art/craft auction.
The shape had been rolling around in my head for a while. I started another one first, but realized that what I'm doing with THAT one was going to take me quite awhile. Lots of sewing, quilting, color changes. But I still wanted to use the same shape for another bag. I decided to part with some of my dear, purple wool tweed that I was saving for another project, but this structured bag called out for a suiting fabric, and who am I to argue?
*** New: This bag design has a name now. Meet Dolores. She's a bit retro. A bit glam. A bit feisty. And all lady. ***
