I have been seeing these rag quilt purses on a lot of other people’s blogs and just never had the time or a sewing machine to make one…and then my winter holidays came along and I had time and GUESS WHAT!?! My mom and dad got me a sewing machine!!! I love my parents – especially when they get me awesome gifts 😀
My niece Raven loves everything pink and purses so I thought I would make my first purse for her. Instead of making it too pink (she’s got waaay to much pink stuff) my sister and I picked out some nice fabric and pink straps. My sister has more recent experience with sewing (and does a ton of amazing knitting work – I will post some of her fabulous creations to share with you!) so she helped me out. We both agreed that it would be nice to have a solid inner lining rather than have scallop sqaures. This meant a little more work but a nicer result. I also decided to make it a little smaller since she’s little too!
I forgot to take a picture of the inside lining but you can kind of see that it’s solid yellow.
