Purses and bags

I adore purses and bags!  I change them regularly 5 or 6 times a year.  My husband says I get new purses so I don't have to clean my old ones out and he may just have a point there!   I tend to buy them at thrift stores and never pay more than $5 for them.  (but the wallets I have to buy to match tend to cost $15 so it's not a great savings after all!)  Anyhow on my wonderful google reader I noticed Ucreate had a September "create with me project" which is an ADORABLE bag!  Of course I *just* finished moving my belongings over to a NEW purse this very morning, but who cares.  I love it and am joining in.  I have some great heavy pink and white fabric with dandelions on it.

Not very fallish, but perfect for spring.  Which will come again (even though it won't feel like it in January and February when it's 30 below zero!)  So here's the LINK for the create with me project.  Join in!


  1. Thanks for the link. A girl can never have too many bags. I've followed your link to UCreate and I'm joining in too. Should be fun.

  2. I agree! Bags and shoes- can't ever have enough! I started the pattern last night. Had a hard time with the pleat, never had a pattern were you pleat FIRST then cut out. So now my opening is smaller so I had to shorten my bag. But I do love the look of the pleat. And next time I'll do it right! (Or at least the way the tutorial says to do it!)
