I love to come up with a creative approach to a conventional need. My mother has been a great influence on me. She has always been very creative and resourceful. And she tells me that my great-grandmother was a terrific seamstress, too (which I do not claim to be!).
In addition to my sewing patterns, I have designed unconventional lamps, window coverings, table accessories and wall hangings. My inspiration comes from pretty much everything around me.
I left the corporate world in 2001. Although I have been creative in varying degrees ever since I can remember, now I get to be creative full time - a total dream come true. I live with my husband, a woodworker, and 2 dogs in beautiful, rural Chatham County, North Carolina.
Make a casual little purse, an elegant evening purse, or a special occasion purse. Just big enough for a lipstick, a few dollars and your cell phone... or whatever you just can't be without when traveling light (I can fit my glasses, too). And it makes a great gift!
Wear it on your shoulder, across your body, on your belt, or as a clutch. Just make the strap the length you want or make two loops to put a belt through. The finished dimensions are approximately 5" high by 8" at widest.
