More Purse Projects

I have been encouraged by friends to make more purses, their comments and positive responses have given me the confidence to branch out and make small coin purses and electronic devise bags and holders too.
I have really been bitten by the possibilities of what can be made with fabric.  There are some really beautiful fabrics to choose from as well as patterns, tutorials from blogs and video's from youtube.
 This purse was made from 5 fat quarters.  These can be picked up at most fabric stores and quilt shops already cut for you and run about $1 - $3 per piece.
 These simple little coin purses were made with scraps, very simple to make.  You can whip one up in about 15-20 minutes.
 This electronic device bag was made form McCall's pattern #M6477.
 Another simple tutorial from a blog.  Lovin' the colors in this.
 Ruffles, ruffles and more ruffles, you just can't go wrong when adding those to a bag as you can see in the next photo.
This bag was also a blog tutorial.  It almost looks like a little skirt.
This is a Kindle/Nook tri-fold carrier.  I still need to work on the techniques involved in this on.  Oh ya, I just noticed the picture is upside down.

Your bags are really good. I'm glad your friends are encouraging you. You will only get better. I am trying to figure out Google+. Would you please click on my name? It seems to be going to my Google+ page instead of my blog. Any ideas?

Ooh, pretty. You've been busy. I haven't been sewing lately, but soon I have to. I have rolls of fabric waiting for me to recover our couch and a chair. I've never done that before... thankfully it's just cushions to recover and not an actual upholstery job. Still scary though. Thank goodness I got the fabric heavily discounted when our JoAnn's Fabric moved to their new location.
I'm so glad you are here. Take care and have a wonderful weekend.

Those are so darling! I bet you have such a good time. I actually broke out my sewing machines over the weekend and sewed a couple of little dresses for my 5 year old granddaughter. It was really fun.

Your purses are so cute. And I just LOVE fabric. Can never have enough.
