First Purse

 Last week I finished up this purse.  I first saw it a few months ago on OCD: obsessive crafting disorder and knew I would have to make it.  The tutorial is found here.

 It went together well and I even put in my fist magnetic clasp.  Fun.  The lining is a green sateen fabric.

I am bringing it to the Des Moines Modern Quilt Guild for a swap on Thursday, but I  am planning on making one for myself later.  I am linking up this fun fall colored purse to Celebrate Color.

  1. Looks great! That's impressive for your 1st purse.

  2. and having put in your first magnetic clasp- wasn't it easy?
    I was shocked with my first one, that I had avoided it for so long and it is easy!
