My New Parisian Purse


On New Years Day every year I decide on a new project to start making
This is the little kit I bought last year at the Craft and Quilt Fair


Pattern from Studio Mio


Little purse all finished and waiting for handles to be attached
Only thing is I needed a Cobbler to put the rivets in for me as I had no Awl


 Here the pretty rivets are all in


and bag complete!!!
So happy with this one!!!
Perfect when you just need to take a purse, phone, glasses and keys!!!

Happy Weekend to all my Visitors.........Dzintra

Good morning DZINTRA, my dear friend from way back in the day....

I love this. I am in the process of finding just the right little purse for my make-up; perhaps I should try my hand at making one! Oh, bring out the sewing machine! Love the little hardware to go with it. Are you still PLANNING my friend?

Enjoy your weekend! Anita

I bet it feels good to start the new year with such a terrific finish. Not only darling, but very practical too. That's the perfect size for me, not too large.

Dzintra, I just love that fabric! Maybe because of the travel motif, or the Eiffel tower, but it just seems to scream "take me somewhere"! My purse is falling apart, I hope I can find something as beautiful as yours... Have a great weekend!

the things you make are always so pretty. I had to smile, nowdays any purse of mine has to include my glasses and my pills. LOL how things change as we get older. When I was young, there were no mobile phones, but my purse always contained a notebook and pen for getting guys phone numbers ha ha

Good thinking 99 to take your bag to the cobbler. The bag is very you? Enjoy using it lots.
