Woohoo! Just lovin' this "Sparkly Little Purse with Flowers" -- a special request birthday gift for our beautiful little grand daughter Angelina who turns 8 years old this week!
Approximate fussing time: 3 hours
Cost: Cheap! 1/4 yard main satin, 1/4 yard lining satin, 1/8 yard lace, misc materials for flowers, 9" zipper
|Silk Chiffon Flower Hand Bag|
|BluGirl Hand Bag|
She was inspired by this BluGirl Hand Bag
See that price? Ouch!
The tutorial was very good -- but I did struggle with how to position the zipper when I stitched over it around the perimeter of the piece.
I revised things a bit by including a sewn-in wrist handle and leaving the opening to turn it right side out on the lining instead of the main piece (to do this you MUST leave the zipper open at least 1/2 way).
Now the question is -- add more flowers ? or leave it alone ?
Thanks for the feedback! Sew much fun!
