InstructionsYou can make the purse any way you'd like. This one is fairly simple (just rectangles). Most of the work is in the quilting and decorating.
Type of item: Accessory
Style: Whimsical, Funky
Fabric, embroidery floss
What was your inspiration?
I love crazy quilting and free-motion stitching. I also enjoy all the embellishing. These purses let me push my machine a bit. We all have those stitches, it's time to use them!
I bought the book, "Crazy Quilting with an Attitude" by Barbara Randle. That gave me a ton of ideas.
What are you most proud of?
I did some bobbin work on the blue and brown bag. That was a ton of fun. I used one of my special feet to sew a string of pink pearls on the pink one. Then I tried prairie points on the boating bag. I grew up on Lake Huron...oh how I miss it!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Don't be intimidated by this. The bags are so busy that most people won't see little boo-boos.
