I mentioned a few days ago that I wanted to make a black and white purse before heading to Pittsburgh and then all of a sudden I remembered a purse that I bought at a quilt show boutique a while back. I think it was at the Victorville quilt show. This is one of those things that "I could have made" but it was much easier to buy it. In fact, I think I own just about every one of the fabrics that was used. The only problem was that the strap was too short. I like to be able put the strap across my body or over my shoulder. So it has sat un-used until this morning. This morning I finally got around to making a longer strap (it probably took be all of a 1/2 hour). I loved the bag before but now it's just perfect and I adore it.
So here's the outside. Don't you just love the Alexander Henry face fabric and the stripped binding?
