I rise early in the morning and go down late in the evening. My desire between waking and sleeping is to make things pretty or make pretty things! I have been in secondary education for twenty years teaching high school art, helping young adults recognize their creative nature or trying to help them develop one. I thought I had given up sewing when my little ones grew too big to applique their clothes and make cutesy clothes for them. I rediscovered that love of creative sewing one summer two or three summers back when I wandered into a quilt shop with my sister (the queen bee of quilting) and saw a little clutch purse pattern that looked too simple not to make. I was hooked! The rest of the summer I was designing purses and have been doing so every since.View all patterns by designer (43) »
So many fun features on this bag it is sure to charm.
Although it is an applique it may just be such a simple applique it may not even qualify as applique. Cut out the shape, glue it to the background panel and stitch around the edges. Add a few stitches with embroidery floss and the decorative panel is complete. The diagonal pockets on the back make the bag as pretty from the back as from front. Lift the flap and find another hidden pocket that is big enough for a magazine, a book, or a notebook. Inside the purse,
hanging just within reach is a key clasp so you never have to go digging in the bottom for your keys
