Today my friend Sam came over and showed me how to make those quilt purses that Angie Juda posted a while back. Oh my gosh!!! They are so much fun to make! I had so much fun that I made 3 of them today and I am going back to the fabric store tomorrow so I can make more! They are pretty easy after you make one especially if you have a helper.
This is my first one and after I finished I realized I had put 3 of the same pattern in a row around the side but that is ok.
The next one I made for a good friend of mine. I hope she loves it! The fabric is the same on both of these but I took one picture with the flash and one without and the 2nd picture is actually more true to color. The colors were close to our regal rose and sage shadow. I used the Stampin Up ribbon for the handles. It is way easier than making the handles. I wanted to put flowers on them but I ran out of fabric so if I can get more of the same I will attempt that tomorrow. We cut all of the scallop squares out with the Big Shot and then made little mini quilts out of each square and sewed them together. They look so much cuter in person! I wish you all could see them.
My friend Sam made this one for me just because she is a sweetheart. She made it for me to take to Leadership to put my swaps in. How cool is that?
