I’m having a GIVEAWAY!!! I’ve always wanted to say that. 🙂
After you are finished reading here, feel free to check out my other blog posts.
Sew, Mama, Sew visitors, welcome to my crafty place! I’m a stay at home mom to my four kids and I’ve been married to Mr. TellBlast for sixteen years. I homeschool three of my four kids. After eight years at home, my oldest is currently enrolled full time in high school. I craft in my spare time.
My travel purse is 5 7/16″ high and 4 1/2″ wide. The handle is 23 1/2″ long. Worn across the body or over the shoulder on one side puts the purse right at my hip. It is made of quilting cotton. Brand new, never used!
I swayed a little from the tutorial while making the pocket. I turned the edges under and used a straight stitch to create a cleaner look than a zigzag. The pocket is perfectly handy for a credit card. If your card is always lost and you take forever to fish it out, this pocket will be great for you.
The lining fabric was taken from my 9yo daughter. She thought she’d like to handsew a 9-patch quilt around April, but she just isn’t ready for the amount of precision needed to make a good-looking block. And then she was given a brand new sewing machine in September. So hand stitching a quilt isn’t her cup of tea any more. (But she does like red hibiscus flower tea thanks to Ms. Kristie.) The button is vintage from my slowly shrinking collection. The outside fabric was bought special, just for this purse. Aw, how nice.
To be awarded with this travel purse, you need to comment here no later than 11 p.m. CST on Dec. 5. The gift will be awarded on Dec. 6 to the person who answers this question best: Where will you take your travel purse? Please leave your email address if you are not a blogspot blogger so I can let you know if you are the winner.
