Western Purses

Beings I didn't blog yesterday thought I would make a couple of posts today. This is the western purse pattern like Angie Juda made. I did change it a little. I added 4 squares across and 3 rows. I also made the handle 3 inches wide and 30 inches long. I have 5 different materials in this as I only wanted the boot pattern on one square on each side so I added another tan material to make the pattern look right. Instead of making a latch I added 8 magnets right in the "V" on each top square. These are so much fun to make! I went material shopping yesterday as you can see and this is just some of the material I got. These 3 pieces I am going to make a much smaller purse with just 2 squares across and 2 squares down for a volunteer project at one of the schools. These colors are so nice and springy!!
This is going to be in the shades of brown. I don't think I should have went in the store to take a lesson as they just opened a new Fabric Shop!!!
This purse will be in the blacks!!!
I just loved these colors together so of course I had to buy them too!!! Have a great day! I will show you them when I get them all put together!
