Sweet Harmony Handbag

I've been working for a couple of weeks on making this new purse! I wanted to have it ready in time for spring - and I love it!

I already had the pattern and fabric, and am trying to complete some projects that I already have all the supplies for! I will tell you that I found this pattern challenging - I thought I'd never figure out the cell phone pocket! But, in the end - I'm very pleased with how it turned out!

The purse totally looks like spring! It also looks to be more advanced than my own sewing skills! Very cute!

So cute! I don't think I would have the paitience to muddle through the pattern. I've 2 similar patterns that I've shelved. Great job!

LOVE IT!! What a great place to put the cell phone pocket.

Don't you feel like you can conquer the world when you figure out an obscure sewing step???

I think its adorable. I have to say I have a purse pattern my Amy Butler and I have not finished it. I found it very difficult to understand and I even asked my mil who has been sewing for 30+ years and she couldnt even figure it out. I have some of it sewn together so I might just finish it my own way.

Its very pretty!

Bevy said...

Good for you!! It always feels good to figure out a challenging project like that. Doesnt' it?

Love the purse. Amy Butler has beautiful fabric lines. I have always thought her patterns were a little bit difficult. For me anyways. I am a visual person.
You however did a great job.

And since it looks like you no longer have snow on the ground, it looks like a grand time to declare "spring!" I love that color combination and all of the pockets. I love the handbag you made for me during my first swap. I use it to carry "things to do" if I am going to be waiting somewhere for my kids. Are you planning a swap soon??

Elaine said...

Great Handiwork Monica!

My totally awesome purse is on hold because my sewing machine faultered during my zipper application... ugh! :)

I love the print! Very feminine- and will look great with that new cut- you're all set for spring!
