New Springtime Purse

Since Spring isn't coming quite as quickly as I'd like it, I thought I'd bring Spring inside. What better way to bring Spring inside other than a new purse for the Spring.

New Springtime Purse Lining

Fabric are both some that I had in my stash left over from other projects. The purse came from the very easy tutorial from Vintage Ric Rac. I modified it a bit by adding some d-rings for the strap and also adding a flap (because I don't have the magnetic closures). I tried to add snaps to it but couldn't get the teeth to grab ahold the fabric.

My next project for myself is a knitting bag and maybe a bag or too for others for Christmas... we'll see! I found your blog googling knittig case and your tutorial came up. I'm going to incorporate that somewhat into my bag. I will be sure to credit you for that idea! :)

oh, and if I didn't say it.. Love your color choices and how you ingeniously altered the original. Well done!! *clapping* :)

Thank you so much lisa! I too am wanting to make a knitting bag and incorporate needle storage into it. I'm really loving this photo here http://www.flickr.com/photos/karissa/303084241/ and want to incorporate that into it as well. (For my own personal use, not for sale because that would be stealing her idea and I find that very wrong) I have a little too much on my plate right now but have been trying to "design" it and work out any kinks so I can make it.

And the little extras I added were completely last minute and I'm actually shocked that they came out exactly how I wanted them. Sometimes my last-minute-genious-ideas turn into a complete mess, but this one really seemed to work.
