What are you most proud of? Manipulating this stiff black crazed pleather upholstery fabric is a challenge. START OUT WITH NEW NEEDLE for maximum glide and control of this fabric. I made a matching padded mini purse--just the right size padding for my camera--keeps it from knocking around in the purse. I made it by free motion quilting a hunk of lining fabric to a polar fleece foundation. A cotton loop and handmade polymer clay button for mini purse closure.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Remember to change your machine needles often--avoids all kinds of problems. I can give you a long list of things that can go wrong if you use old dull machine needles. Like they say here in Wisconsin, Uf-dah! (Norwegian for Oh My Gosh!)

9 x 10" purse, 37" cross body strap, and convenient wristlet strap. Wristlet straps are uber easy to make; crimped with hammer. Let me know if you'd like details where to buy wristlet connectors.

Hi my friend 4bird2. I didn't know I was a PPP. How wonderful. You have a great smile in your photo. I'll bet you're a fun person to hang around. Best wishes.
