Special Request Purse #4 (and it's the last one)

This purse was quite the challenge and that's why it took so long to make.
It wasn't hard to make, the design was one I've used before
it was just deciding how to piece the striped body of the bag that slowed the process.

I was using scraps, which can also get tricky - 
kept running out of fabric so had to check my stash for more, fun.
Just nothing like taking several fabrics and sewing them together
to create a new, unique piece of fabric :)

I'm so glad I took my time because I'm very happy with the results!

Time to move on to Christmas projects, so I may not be back until the new year.

Enjoy this special time of year!

Oh I just love it! It's the perfect bag to carry around this time of year. I love the bow across the stripes. Thank you for sharing it. I may just have to make one for me.
