I am an admitted purse-o-holic. My constant search for the “perfect purse” (you know, the one that will make your life complete?) has led me to start wanting to make them myself. So I purchased a few books, a few patterns and a whole heap of funky fabrics. Yet I still couldn’t bring myself to try and make a purse. Why? Fear. It is so wierd to me that even after all the things I have successfully created, certain things still scare me. In this case, trying to line a purse and create a square bottom had me quaking in my shoes. So, I took a class and in less than two hours had mastered the skill I feared to try on my own. The result, three funky fabulous purses ready to use. Will I use them? Maybe. More likely I will try to sell them. After all, I am not yet sure I have created the perfect one.
The above purse started life as two placemats. See more purses and stuff at my etsy shop www.beautifullystrange.etsy.com
