New Summer Purse for ME

This is not a new style purse but I included raw edge applique and free-style/swirly quilting.

The 2 sides are totally different.....

and the bottom is striped......

I LOVE this bag....the size and shape are perfect for me.

I'm glad I took some time out of wedding preparations to make this bag....it seemed to take a long time to make it. First, I just couldn't make up my mind on some of the design elements and I didn't designate long periods of sewing just for this special treat for myself....but I'm so happy it's finished before the big event!

Thanks for visiting my Blog!

Love the purse!!! I've been wanting to make a new diaper bag that looks "girlish" since Brooke's birth but haven't taken the time to decide how to make it! This sure give some inspiration! Best wishes on last minute wedding stuff! Gina

I LOVE it! Will this be your wedding purse? The flowers remind me of the wedding decorations you made. Awesome job on this one!
