making purses

For the first time in what seems like forever, I am getting a batch of purses ready to be sewn together.  It’s one of those things I procrastinate because it feels like such an overwhelming project– but once I get rolling, I can’t stop. Another idea strikes me and I have to design just one more…

Occasionally, I have a panic attack thinking that I am running out of fabric, which is completely ridiculous and would likely never happen even if I didn’t purchase another yard for the next 5 years. But, I am running out of the bicycle fabric going into this purse. I think it’s from the Heather Ross Lighting Bugs and other Mysteries line of fabric from a few years ago. I only have a few little strips left. I kind of want to hoard what I’ve got left, maybe I’ll hang onto a bike or two. I’m almost out of VW Vans and goldfish fabric from the same line- for those of you who remember. So stinkin’ cute.

So, whoever gets this purse should feel super lucky…

It’s all about the circles (and bikes and flowers), this batch of purses is full of them.
