What was your inspiration?
The turtle!! Of course.
What are you most proud of?
This is a challange for sewing several set-in seam and to improve fabric selection skill and hand piecing skill too. All seams and corner are matched and no bulk seam inside. This purse is made from a whole miniquilt that joined neatly at the sides.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
This project is almost done by hand, is a excellent project for hand sewing and hand quilting lover. You can do it everywhere. When I tested this pattern, I finished my first purse in a day and made it faster for the 2nd as I found the new way to assembly. The new assembly details is in my current PDF PATTERN. http://www.craftsy.com/pattern/quilting/accessory/tortoise-shell-purse-/33958
