~A New Purse~

What a busy weekend we came through!  My husband finally had a day off and we went shopping together, something we haven't done in six months.
And I had my nine and ten year old grandkids with me yesterday.  We had a lot of fun. 

I saw a photo of a purse that I really like and I have wanted to make, so I took a couple of hours yesterday and finally made it.  I used a small polk-a-dot fabric for the lining and it has several inside pockets.  It seems that the purses that I buy never have enough and I dislike having all of my purse paraphernalia dumped together in the bottom of my purse, so  hopefully all the pockets will remedy that.  There is even a pen pocket in it.  Don't you hate searching through your purse for a pen?



Remember the apron that I made recently?




I used the leftover fabric on this purse.  I made up my own pattern, so this purse cost me just a couple of dollars!  You can't get much better than that.




That's what I've been up to, what have you been up to?
We are enjoying another beautiful sunny, but cooler day!  I hope you are too.

Darling Cindy you did a beautiful purse, And so quickly and so low cost!! I'd like to be able to sew as better as you. It's so long I desire to create my purse by myself but really I even don't know how to start... :)
I love it!
Hope your days are fine and fair.
A hug to you my darling

Dearest Aunt Cindy =)
Fun to hear that you all went shopping together, I hope you enjoyed a lovely long weekend!
Your purse is adorable and YES -I hate trying to search my purse for a pen... makes me wonder if it's men or women that design most purses these days.

Always enjoy your lovely photos <3

Really cute. Love the fabric combination. I agree with Martina. I think an Etsy shop should be in your future!

Cindy, I love your purse! You are so talented and gifted to think up such lovely sewing ideas. I see you are still having nice weather there. It's going down to 8 here tonight and only 17 tomorrow so quite a change from the humidity we had on the weekend. We're still enjoying our beautiful grandson and his parents here. Blessings, Pamela

Hi Cindy,
I love your new purse and your apron. We have been spending time with our grandchildren lately too-hard to believe they are back to school today.

Your bag is beautiful, Cindy! I like the black and and white fabric and your design.

I was away in Colorado fro 10 days--visiting my children and grandchildren and I helped my daughter pick out her wedding dress! It was a memorable trip!

Shelia said...

Hi Cindy! I love your purse and what a great job you did! I was about to ask you if you had a pattern and then you told me! You're good!! I love your fabrics and I'm like you - the purses aren't organized very well anymore. I'm always reaching around trying to find my things! Maybe you could make a patter and sell it! ;)
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

What a gorgeous purse, and with a place for everything! You could open an etsy shop so easily--with your aprons, purses and other creativities! I also so enjoyed your cottage pics --i'm on the "same page" with you on cottage love! And, such a sweet picture of "making friends". Pictures say so much!

Pondside said...

Well done. You are so creative!
