Restless hands


This is what I did because I needed something easy to do while fighting the flu. I made two purses. The one on the left has tortoise shell handles (they don't show up in the pic very well) and is reversible with an inside pocket. I used a paper grocery bag as the pattern. The smaller one on the right is also reversible and was based on a purse I bought recently. I loved the design of the purse but hated the fabric so I bought it knowing I had the perfect fabric at home.
I don't know what I will do with all these, maybe sell the larger one. Or use it as as knitting bag, who knows!

They turned out beautiful, hon! I love the print on that fabric so much.

I'm so sorry you had the flu! Wish I could have been that productive when I had it last week. :) Hope you're feeling better. I love the purses!

Super cute purses! Any plans for diaper bags? Elsie Rose would be pretty stylish with a pretty bag in a cool print like that. ;) Hope that you'll be good as new soon. The flu is never fun!

Oh definitely keep the big one. It is delicious!

(I hope you are feeling better.)

I like your purses and I don't carry a purse. But if I were a purse person I would but it. The fabric rocks!
