My design wall has not been reinstalled yet so I am using a design key rack and door lever.
Purses are very "in" right now. I rarely carry one and if I do, it is small. However, I just love all the new designs and the fabric combinations. Have you seen SNAP HAPPY! by Stitchin' Sisters. It is a fun little purse. It comes in 3 sizes and you will never guess what keeps snaps it closed and keeps it shut. I made several this past weekend at retreat.
The orange/black combination was made from 2 fat quarters. The small one was from scraps.
See the secret ingredient? It is a piece of cheap tape measure. You can find them for 99 cents at the 99 Cents only store. Don't use a "good" as they are too stiff. You just pull on the prairie points to open the bag.
I also finished up 2 grocery sacks which are a gifs for a friend. I used Oak Street's pattern Fold-N-Go Green Grocery Bag. The bags are fully lined and the bag is a little complicated to make but the pattern instructions and pictures are very helpful.
They also have a small wine carrier that has 4 compartments. I made one a while ago for a gift and forgot to take a photo-it was much more complicated to make.
Be sure to check out the other design walls.
