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.
Two pockets are underneath a cover that slides up and down the strap. This is a perfect purse for the essentials (passports fit, too). And it's a great pattern to use small pieces of fabulous fabrics, some of your stash, or to embellish by hand. Casual, evening or everyday, this has so many possibilities.
Included are four pages of instructions with decimal and metric measurements, six photos and pattern pieces. Also, my blog, www.sweetbriarstudio.blogspot.com, has tutorials on how to make the fabric beads I used on the purse that is pictured as well as the cover fabric itself.
