Day 3 of the UR Priceless Blog Hop And A Fabric Giveaway
 
 
A big thank you to Madame Samm for the great pattern and clear instructions,  and to our great cheerleader Katherine for all her time to get us all organised.
 
I've made lots of purses and bags but never used a sew-on frame before - once I figured it out, it was fun. I did some iron-on machine applique on the first purse I made; I wasn't too happy with it because after I put it on the frame I realized that the applique should have been smaller.
 
 
 
 
I used an old leftover upholstery sample for the second little purse; I didn't use fleece because the fabric was thick enough on its own. Cuteness improving.
 
 
 
 
I think that I liked using cotton fabrics with fleece better. There are so many great prints - coins for coin purse, chickens, diamonds, stripes - all great fun.


 

THIS WAS A LOT OF FUN!!
 
 
  the pattern is now available for $7.50 at Madame Samm's Craftsy pattern shop
 


A day after election day give away
