I actually started and finished a project all in one day! I've been needing to make myself a new purse, since the strap on my old one has kind of disintegrated after two years of use.
I Think Sew. There are lots of beautiful bags in the book, but one little wristlet really caught my eye. Lately I've noticed that instead of putting my purse's strap over my shoulder, I've just been grabbing the top of the bag and carrying it that way, so a purse with no strap seemed like a good idea. Plus, this wristet has a short strap for putting around my wrist for those times when I need to use both hands for something.
Now that I'd finally picked a pattern, my next challenge was colour. I'm not one of those women who has a purse for every outfit. I use one purse for pretty much everything, though I have one fancy purse that I try to remember to use occasionally. So, whatever colours I chose would have to work with anything and everything. This is what I went with. There's nothing neutral about it, but I'm going to say it works with anything (even when it maybe doesn't)!
I carried the bag to church this morning so it has already been put to use. My old wallet seems a little too bulky for it though, so I may have to make a new wallet sometime soon :)
Now I'm off the spend the afternoon packing up the Christmas decorations. School starts again tomorrow and we always try to get Christmas put away before we're back into the regular routine.
I hope you're having a great weekend!
