my first purse

Project Description

What was your source for this sewing project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo cross pocket bag Link to website or photo FonsandPorter.com What are you most proud of? this was my very first purse and it came out professional and my daughters face was priceless! What advice would you give someone starting this project? if this project confuses u do a puzzle lay out of the cut pieces, the directions for the straps were a little iffy first guess the purse was too short the second time after seam ripping the straps off, i figured it out that u don't sew the straps all the way to the bottom of the sides of the purse, you measure about 3 to 3 1/2" down from the TOP part of the purses band

What you will need

  • i used cotton floral print with a rusty color swirly print I purchased a beautiful crystal button for the front (not showed) some snaps to close the purse
  • not showed.Because I finished the purse at the lake and forgot my camera!
