What materials did you use? A Modern Flower print in a sturdy duck cotton for the Exterior, carrying straps, and pockets. Color matched cotton print for purse and pocket linings. Handmade Polymer Clay Button on Front Pocket, and Beads for Zipper Pull.

What are you most proud of? Here is a great big color matched decorative button I made especially for this fabric. The position of the button is offset on purpose--wouldn't want to spoil that great big white flower. I experimented also with placement of my Mill Street Studio label--attaching it to the interior pocket.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Large print fabrics are fun to work with. Single out a great image (like the white flower) and feature it on a front pocket. I didn't add beaded zipper to this small 9 x 9" purse. I didn't want to take away from the feature flower and decorative button.

Hi there my friend 4bird2. Thanks for you kind words. The shape of the flower and stem remind me of geranium, but the unlikely blue theme makes it more dramatic. I have enough leftover of this fabric to make an accent pillow . I'm going to go check out your projects now and see what you've been up to. Have fun this week. Visit my website, 1893victorianfarmhouse, where we are into year 6 of a Victorian house restoration. Look at my website profile and you'll see my email address. I
