So I found my pattern, all 10 pieces, and the directions. This is a tricky but clever pattern. And it is perfect for using up precious bits of older fabrics.
Here's a finished purse and a look at the clever front flap with an elasticized pocket.
This flap lifts up, revealing the body of the purse. There's an outer pocket as well as the inner part of the purse as well.
I looked through my stash and identified some fabrics that would work well together for these purses, and I got busy.
|Straps for four purses|
|Using two fabrics, each one of these four purses will be just a bit different.|
This is the point at which the magic is about to happen. All parts of the purses have been prepped. I anticipate some finishes early tomorrow. That will be a total of five. And then I can go into a new pile of fabrics. These purses, part of a hygiene education initiative for girls in Zambia, are satisfying to work on.
