Hey Mercedes bag by Sara Lawson. Ive made is several times - look here. As I deconstructed it, it dawned on me that the lining zip pockets could make a nice little pouch. And it did!
The last item on my checklist was to reorganize the studio and put things away so that I can devote July to Sew Powerful purses, the menstrual hygiene education program in Zambia. I'm pleased - and luckily this horribly hot weather has helped - to say that I've gotten started. My goal is to do 20 purses in July. So far it's just Jury Duty and a couple of doctor appointments on the schedule. The picture above shows all the parts necessary for just 2 purses - this pattern isn't an easy one. But this project is so worthwhile. Below are 7 purses already finished and just waiting to be mailed. Look out, July!
