New Purse

 I really needed a new purse all fall.

Here’s what the handles on the old one looked like by mid-December.

Can you believe that?

So, sometime around Christmas I rummaged through my fabric stash and assembled the ingredients for a new purse.

I got as far as getting all the parts ready to be sewn together.

And, then, John got really sick.

After he died, after everyone left, putting together the purse was a very soothing thing to do.

Here it is finished.  See the chicken fabric?

Here is the inside, with its egg fabric:

Here’s a view of the pocket:

If you follow this blog at all, you know that there are MANY versions of this purse pictured.  When one wears out, I make a new one.  And I’ve helped a lot of people make one.  The pattern is Bow Tucks Tote by Penny Sturges, No. PS008.  And I love everything about how this purse is organized and how it wears.

This new one, though, is about the tackiest thing I’ve ever seen.

And, I love it.
