Purse Love

I'm so happy with my new purse. I've been dreaming about the sweater it's made from for a long time -- it's been sitting in the stash for at least a year and a half. I was getting more and more desperate for a purse as the one I was using was falling apart. A few hours in the sewing area and I had my new one!

This time I tried adding some stiff interfacing on recommendation from a friend. It made such a nice difference. And, I can change the color of the flower to go with a different season. Hopefully it will last a long time!

Love it! I just got some herringbone fabric at a church sale for a new quilt im working on. It is so classic. The interfacing is a good tip - I am going to keep that in mind.
