Q&A with Sewing Obsessed

AllThatPatchwor asked:
Great looking purse! I'm so anxious to make some more purses myself after starting the course, too, and seeing some of the wonderful work of other class members!
Sewing Obsessed answered:
Thanks. The outside is 100% cotton with the navy lining in cotton twill. It's a wee bit floppy. Need to experiment with different interfacjings and interlining.
Miriane asked:
Really nice! I love your choice of fabric and colour!
Sewing Obsessed answered:
Thank you
nancyzl asked:
Very smart looking! I think I saw your comment about finding supplies in your area & was going to suggest Etsy and also your local thrift /charity shop for used bags for zippers & hardware.
Sewing Obsessed answered:
Thank you. Used bags was suggested to me and I'm going to give that a try. I can buy the hardware here but the cost adds up if I want to do a number of purses. This is where the creativity kicks in. Finding different types of hardware/embellishments for the purse.
Brett Bara asked:
Beautiful! I love that you chose a pattern for the body and a solid for the details. Your finishing is very nice. Looks great!!
Sewing Obsessed answered:
Thanks Brett. Your's is the first Crafsy course I have taken and I loved it. You taught me a few new tricks. I refer back to it many times as there is always something I have missed or forgotten. Thanks for the great instruction.
