Back when the Dick and Jane fabric line came out, I- like every other quilter who learned to read with Dick and Jane books, ran out and bought some and made a quilt!! Thought I had a photo of it on my laptop...but can't find it right now... sorry!
Anyhoo, I decided to make myself a new purse to take back to work at the end of August when I have to go back....UGH.
Just the thought is BEYOND depressing...
So, I searched around in my stash scraps and found some leftovers!! Enough for a new school purse.
I do so love this fabric!! Life was so simple in these books.
I especially love the mother at her sewing machine.
My son's girlfriend Susan wants to make a purse for the first time . She picked out this pattern from my drawer. So I wanted to make it up myself first, so I could teach it to her .
What I like about this purse is that it needs no fastener. The handle runs through 2 loops on each side and automatically closes the purse when picked up.
I only put one pocket on the inside as I use a purse insert for all my stuff, so don't really need any pockets. It is the perfect pattern for a new sewer to try out! I'll be making it with her on Sunday! Wish us luck! It should be a fun time!!
