Not yer Granny's Quilted Hand Bag

This is what's become of my "Burning Layers" homemade fabric experiment! I used Lazy Girl Designs easy purse pattern that called for added embellishments. I think the fabric I made is embellished enough! I'm really proud of it as it's only my 2nd little purse. Aint it kewl!

It's lined with little pockets and I even used a magnet closure instead of velcro.



Move over Luis Vuitton!

Well thank you all for your nice comments! You should see me flashing the purse around fishing for strangers comments : ) and Thank you my little Chloe for your articulate comment and for spending 30 minutes typing it out! Yes it is hard to craft with our two cats, a beta fish and little Hammie the hamster.

Hi Seamrippstress,

Your Chloe Handbag is fabulous. The fabric you created is beautiful and really makes the most of my design.

I would love to cross-post your creation on my blog for other Lazy Girls to enjoy. Please let me know if you are interested.
Again, great job!

Just lusting after that 'fabric' and bag. Making evolved fabric is so rewarding isn't it, especially when happy accidents happen. You've inspired me to continue along that vein, it's been a while since I was that creative with scraps and odds and ends, too many projects on the go!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hope the weather has cooled down for you, can't say we are having a typical winter here in the UK hottest winter for about 80 years I heard last week.
