The Great Purse Thingy Visual

I took my fabric paint out to the sunporch and mixed a batch of Ultramarine and Cobalt and did these leaves and also painted over some of the flowers on the print to pick up the overall tones. I was aiming for a retro look, hoping to update the fabric slightly from the 80s floral print that I overdyed. It’s kind of cute.

This trapezoid purse is very small but after lugging my humongous, ratty tapestry purse around for 12 years I’m looking forward to skipping about with this one and its matching wallet. I could get very used to sewing up a few bags for myself now and then.

Here’s a snap of the bag with the strap basted on ready to sew together with the lining. Oh, and the buckram worked beautifully for the interlining.
