Oxblood Red Faux Aligator Leather Purse

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I am proud of the free motion quilted interiors and pockets I create for purses--which adds a necessary firmness, and a fraction of weight expected in a high end purse. I like to experiement with pockets and pocket closures, for style and function. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Try upholstery fabric for your next purse exterior. Tips: lengthen your stitches and use a heavier needle 16/100. Topstitching machine needles are great.
