Sewing Purses

I’ve been wanting to use some of my ice dyed fabrics. I’ve also been wanting to make a purse. I found this great pattern, Zip and Go, from Dog Under My Desk Patterns, grabbed some of my fabric, and started on this project.

I found this pattern to be real detailed and easy to follow. I’m not saying it’s one of those sewing projects you can whip out right away, but it is one that is doable.

I loved the process. Here I am auditioning the zippers. The bag fabric on the right is still waiting to be sewn!

The bags are fully lined so you end up with two zipped areas. I used another piece of my dyed fabric for both the lining and the adjustable strap.

I am really picky about my stitches when I topstitch and was so happy that these both turned out with my approval.

I love both of these!

If you are interested in patterns for purses, check out Dogundermydesk. As I said, her patterns are very detailed and easy to understand.

Now what I want to do is make a bigger purse. But that’s for another day. If you have a favorite pattern or pattern source, I’d love to hear about it.

Thanks for dropping by and hoping you’re having a colorful day.
