Earlier, this week this is what it looked like with the purse laid out, as I’m trying to figure out where everything goes. I wanted a purse that looked “Think-Freddy-ish” without screaming “HEY I’M A QUILTER!” You know what I mean. Clothes, purses — there’s art, and then there’s I’M-A-QUILTER-clothes. The best example of the latter was when I went to Houston and some woman had made a vest out of all the tote bags, complete with the handles hanging down all over. And yes, I’ve made a garment or two that fit into that category. Let’s not go there, because I still like that jacket.
Hoping I’m splitting that line, here. Side One.
Side Two, with a little pocket.
Same side without the Metro map.
Zipper pocket for phone. Gazillion pockets for everything else. I looove pockets in my purses.
Like I said, I like Nancy’s designs, but it does take a rocket scientist to figure out her directions. It helps if you’ve sewn a purse before. How do you like that fabric on that lining? Good way to use that Children at Play paper airplane design. I love the soft aqua. Good feelings here on finishing up something this Friday and I hope you’re having some too.
Tomorrow is the Temecula Quilt Show, where they hang their quilts all over outside, kind of like the Sisters Show, but think Cowboys Meet Quilters. And then the Red/White Quilt show over at Temecula Quilt Company. I’m looking forward to this all (plus getting a flu shot — must be fall!).
