What was your inspiration?
I was making little Christmas gifts and made a big satin crazy patch piece on a foundation, then cut it into smaller pieces for little purses. One got stocked with stationery items (pen, diary, notebook etc), this one became a small first-aid kit. The flap on the inside helps keep things from sliding out.
What are you most proud of?
I love how easy these are to make, for such fun results!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Iron all your satin before you start cutting pieces, and be aware that different qualities of polyester have different melting points!
