Quilted Purse

I had a lot of fun doing this project.  I had a person in mind I wanted to make a purse for.  As soon as I saw the fabric I knew it was meant to be used to make a purse.

 I love the colors. First I measured a purse my Mom made for me to get the dimensions.

Then I cut out my pieces of fabric and my batting. I quilted the fabric and then I put binding on the pockets. Then I made the straps and sewed them on.

I don't have a serger but I did a straight stitch and then a zig-zag stitch. I added a button and a little strap to tie the top closed with the button.

 I'm pretty proud of it. I think it looks nice for my first purse.

You should see my Mom's purses. Her's are stunning and she is awesome at machine quilting. 

I am so excited to give this to my friend at church tomorrow. If she doesn't like it, I will be mildly pleased because that means I get to keep it for myself!
