Patchwork Purses!

Okay, so yesterday when I said I was working on the dress for Brittany? Total lie! I meant to, thought I would be, but then I became obsessed with cutting out squares and sewing them together. The little picture I posted yesterday turned into this:
I am so happy with this purse I can't even tell you! The colors are even brighter and yummier in real life! I reluctantly put it in the shop. I still may keep it for myself it doesn't find a home quickly. It is here.
And because I can never seem to make just one of anything I had to make this one. For my dark side I guess! I love black and white as much as color sometimes. It is here.
I really like how they turned out. They are a "hobo" style which I really like because it isn't too big and when I bend over to help my two year old everything doesn't fall out! They do have a little pocket inside and I stiffened them with a pretty stiff interfacing. I have plans for a red and blue one too.

You should put them in your shop as that's the best way to test out if they'll sell! I swaer if you were nearby I'd pay you to teach me how to sew. The only classes around here are advanced classes for those who kbow what a bobbin is;)

Hey Partner!
Cute bags!! I think I saw your blog last night or something. Your dolls are cute and as I was reading about KK, I was thinking how you look like a grown-up version of her.
I look forward to getting to know you better!!
