My friend, Claire, gave me some very nice upholstery fabric scraps left from her daughter's custom furniture from Ethan Allen. She knows that I like to make the occasional purse and I finally got around to using them.
I used a purse that I had bought in Portland, OR several years ago as a pattern. I liked the multiple pockets, the front zipper, and the little loops on the side to hold the strap.
I used the front and the back of that striped fabric with flowers. I'm thinking that I should look for a pretty bead to put on the zipper pull. I will take it to Florida with me and know that it will go with a couple of warm weather tops/jackets.
I've linked up with Off the Wall Friday again.
