I've been saying for months about trying my hand at a purse. This week I made a cute purse for a friend out of some old jeans she'd saved and vintage fabric I had on hand. To be big enough for the pattern pieces I sewed the scraps together to make the basic shape of the purse then trimmed as I cut the pattern out. The shapes and design that came from it makes the bag pop. My plan is to keep making these hippie bags out of recycled clothing and see what takes shape with each one. Super Fun.
So the NYB QAL is calling to me...these fabrics tease me at least once a day but there is no concrete plan to go on yet. I love the yellow for center, purple for points and background fabrics to round out the block. We'll see what happens! All I need is time...
And while the east half of the country is wearing shorts and sandals it's snowing here, again...like once a week snow for the past month. Weird for Portland on the valley floor of two huge mountain ranges. Cold but beautiful sometimes too.
Hope you are having a wonderfully creative week as well!
