Smaller Purse

I made this little purse last night in less than 2 hours. (Most of the squares were cut ahead of time but I still ended up getting out my Big Shot and cutting a few more). These are fun, fun to make and very quick. I used 4 squares on the front and back and then put 2 squares on the bottom and 2 on each side for a total of 14 squares. I bought 2/3 yard of each color (3 colors) and will easily get 2 purses and maybe 3 out of the material. I used a plain black material for the handles and made them 26 inches long. I thought this would make a great teenage girl purse. The materials out there are so beautiful but it would be nice to find a sale somewhere. Ouch! I cut my material in 5 1/4 inch strips and I got 8 squares or actually 4 completed squares as you have to double the squares out of a strip. I used 3 strips plus 1/2 of another one so you would have to use 21 inches to make this purse plus material for the handle. This handle was 2 1/2 inches wide and 26 inches long.
We still have fog here (3 days of it). We hope to get out in the morning to AZ but I guess they are having rain there (5 inches expected). So it is not looking good for us! Hopefully, the sun will come out!!! Have a great and exciting day!!!
