I have been wanting to sew me a purse for a while, and last week I actually went through with it! I bought this fabric from Miss Kate's, a little shop in Silver Dollar City in Branson, MO (Who knew SDC had a fabric store?? I stumbled upon it when we were there last month!).
My mom helped me make a pattern from an Aeropostale purse I love the size of and then I proceeded to add the ruffles to it! I looooove how it turned out! It turned out JUST how I had imagined it! The fabric strips are from Riley Blake and the gray and yellow base pieces are from Moda, I believe. I bought the gray and yellow pieces from our local fabric store.
One thing I like about this purse is that I used fusible fleece on the yellow part of the purse so that the purse its actually very stiff, as opposed to having that "floppy" feel of a handmade purse. I used the fusible fleece on the straps as well, so that helps with the stability of the purse too.
Thanks for visiting and looking at one of my sewing projects! :)
