Remember when I received a giveaway of a Layer Cake from the Fat Quarter Shop via Adventures in Dressmaking (she has the most clever ideas)? I’ve turned two of my Freebird fabrics into the cutest purse ever. As soon as I finished the crazy wonky house quilt, I took a quick break, glued some other craftiness together, then started work on this purse. I made the boxy version, with a 1.5″ square cutout. Observe the quickest purse pattern in the U.S.
Laptops are great when you can have them right by the sewing machine.
I love my Tim Holtz ruler. Friend Donna made a group purchase for my scrapbooking group. It’s a regular 12″ ruler on one side. The other side is a 12″ ruler that’s got a 0 at the center. Symmetry, quilting, scrapbooking, they all meld in my life.
I finished before dark! Just in time to get a shot of this on the yews at sunset. I had all of the supplies at hand — magnetic snap, handles, thread, fabric, and interfacing. I substituted Dur-O spray adhesive for fusible interfacing because that is what I had in my stash.
I am so very pleased with myself and this purse.
