Then There Were Three...



Last week i decided that i'd much rather have a small, soft, slim fabric purse, big enough to hold cash and my most used cards instead of the large bulky leather wallet i usually lug around! Simple i though, so off i went to purchase said item. Well could i find something that fitted the bill? Not at all.
So i though, as i do, i'll make one, can't be that hard surely.
Three purses and one week later i have an object that fits with what was originally in my head. It's a Goldilocks story really, too big, too small, zip in the wrong place etc etc. Next time i think i'll produce a paper pattern or at the very least measure my cards first

Love your third purse Dot. Can't wait to have a close inspection and a tutorial on how you managed to eventually get all the bits and turns sorted out.....I'm still puzzled as to how it worked out!

I love them all Dot - we just need these squidgy things in our pocket instead of hard edge things that poke and are very user unfriendly!
Are they lined.......! Val

Welcome to Blogland Dot - I came over via Val.
Its all looking good so far. Do like your fabric paper, something I must admit, I have never actually tried.

Its wonderful to have a collection of three -- you'll no doubt find uses for two prototypes that you weren't expecting :-)

Welcome to Blogland Dot! You have some very interesting techniques here. I've used the old-fashioned cake doilies to stamp thro but I never thought of using the runners as you have. I shall be going shopping! I love your fabric paper too.
Enjoy your new blogging life :)
