I need a new purse. I was thinking for a while what kind of purse I wanted to make and finally made up my mind. I went to my LQS (local quilt shop) and bought some beautiful fabric, then headed over to JoAnn's for the hardware I needed. This morning I started cutting everything out and realized... no zippers. I forgot. Rats.
I've been thinking a little about being more resourceful after talking with Elisa at our Guild meeting last night. While I won't pretend to be good at recycling and I'm not very thrifty either, I decided to take a baby step in the right direction.
Here's one of my old bags: handles sadly fraying, zippers still in good condition.
Here's a sneak peek at my bag, with interfacing all fused and ready to start sewing.
