My new purse and painting

My bargain buy. These were $120 each at Hobby Lobby, I bought them for $24 each - yea! The color wasn't best for my bedroom so I painted



The after - now to get hubby to hang them.



My new purse - fabric is Freshcut by Heather Bailey, love it for summer. Pattern is from Bag Boutique Book, called Pocketbook purse. I made mine bigger, added yo-yo's and added cording the the handles. It was only a bias strip, not much stability there.

  1. Your bag is perfect. I bought that same book just because of that bag. Perhaps it's time I actually get off my butt and make it!

  6. I love that purse, it is so cute! I just made myself a new one, but I'm not overly happy with how it turned out, though. That's me...not using a pattern and suffering the consequences. :)

    Those mirrors are really nice, too. I love it when you see something that you love, but isn't quite right and some paint will rework it.
