The Purse

I picked up this purse at a garage sale last year for a whopping one dollar.  SOLD!  I used it the whole summer for going to festivals and such so that I could have my hands free but my purse available.  After the whole summer I decided I needed another color for next summer (which would be now).  I also wanted it to be a test pilot to make Christmas presents for all my friends who wanted a bag like mine.  The purse will not win any fashion awards but it sure is handy.

You know the thing that was so difficult about making this purse was that the draw strings for the top are the straps for the pack.  Positioning them within the casing was a bit of a challenge.

                                This one here is the garage sale purse.

Love the purse especially the top one. Is that the one you made? Can I place my order for an apron in that print? Accents in the same pink and blue found in the print would be awesome!! PUUUUUULLLEASE?

Happy Friday, Lori!

Yes- the top one is the one I made. Isnt it pretty? It really sucks because when I bought these they were basically down to the bare bones with these colors. So this was the last of them unless they reissued the design. If I see it I will keep your apron in mind.

LOL, I'm a pain aren't I?

I'm not terrible keen on prints but that one is just gorgeous!
