The Purse

OK. Here comes a warning.  I'm not a seamstress.  I am an impatient sewer who only wants to get the project done, and as with many things in my life, I have to practice at taking my time doing the task at hand... Anyway.

This fabric...
My daughter found it at a 2nd hand shop, and I decided to use part of it to make her a purse for her 13th Birthday....

I cut out some fabric... (no it's not gonna be an elephant!)

I didn't take any "in progress" pictures... But here are a  few of  the done deal
                                                                         Front....
                                                                           Back.....

Fortunately my daughter really liked it, so if she's happy, I'm happy!!
(I made several compartments inside, and even a pocket for her cellphone)
It was super easy to make, even with 3 "helpers" at my side... the youngest would randomly push down the sewing machine pedal under the table for added excitement!
He, he... Nobody got hurt during the making of the purse, and any child labour was on a pure volunteer basis!

Eeeh? I want that purse too! I think it is VERY cool!! Love how you used the pattern of the fabric to fit perfect for the shape of the purse etc.

Why does mamman say "this post has been removed by author?" ;) 'schääääkta, fånar bara.
Yup, I like it too! The purse. Du är duktig du! Jag har fortfarande inte tagit upp min symaskin ur kartongen - trots att det är ett halvår sen jag köpte den... Den kommer väl stå där i ett par år till innan jag ger bort till den bättre behövande antar jag. Jag är en amöba när det gäller syslöjd. Keep up the good work, sister! :)
