.....were spent making these two items. I'll not go into detail, but I have no plans to EVER, ever, EVER use buckram again. At one point, after being scratched one too many times with yet another straight pin, I wanted to throw the purse across the room!!!!! :) I'm glad I didn't as I am pleased with the completed project!
Two bags---One VERY LARGE sized and one just medium sized. One will travel across the ocean, and one will stay right here in the good old US of A!!
A purse set for my sil, Tina for her 40th. birthday!!! :)
I made her a purse, key fob, change purse & wallet(not pictured).
The inside of the small purse has a zippered pocket, 2 small pockets, 1 large pocket with velcro closure & 2 medium-sized pockets.
The GIGANTIC suitcase-sized purse has a hidden zippered pocket, 2 large pockets, 2 medium sized pockets, and 3 smaller pockets. This one has been claimed by my sil Sarah, and will travel with her to far away countries that I will only be able to dream about going to! :)
I love the way these turned out, but I don't want to sew another bag/purse for a VERY long time!!!!! :) But, then again, as I typed those words, I felt the urge to go sew another one!!! Am I a crazy woman, or what???!!!
