Emerald's Purse

Project Description

What was your source for this sewing project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Shoulder Bag Link to website or photo www.allcrafts.net/fjs.htm?url=tinyhappy.typepad.com/tiny_happy/2006/06/shoulder_bag_tu.html What are you most proud of? The fact that I have never made a purse before. I made a few mistakes, but you can't tell. I am ready to make another. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Just do it. This is the easiest pattern. I didn't think I could do it, but I did. If you decide to embroider on the purse and you want it on the side, do not embroider in the middle of your fabric. You have to do the embroidering on the side of the fabric you want the embroidery. I hope that makes sense.

Q&A with Granny Bee

k.poulos@comcast.net asked:
i can't believe i never thought of seaming in the middle instead of the edges. my trouble has always been attaching the handle. this solves that problem very well.
Granny Bee answered:
For a few days I kept thinking about a pattern in my head. It was have taken a lot longer to do than this one. I googled for patterns. When I initially read this one, I thought ugh this is going to be hard. NOT!!! Everything is attached. No cutting handles and figuring out how to place them. Good luck!!
