After work today, I finally got around to trying out the Bouquet purse pattern I had been drooling over. It claims to be a "Two-Hour Tulip Purse" but it took me three hours to finish it. That is probably because I had to run to JoAnn's for a magnetic snap closure and make dinner.
Out of the four possible sizes, I opted to make the standard size which is supposed to be melon sized. I used texty fabric for the inside. If you can see it, that is an x-seam. I CONQUERED AN X-SEAM! Forget the Y-seam, it's an X! Okay, maybe I'm a little too excited about this. :)
The sides are supposed to be folded in so the bag looks like a tulip, but I can't get them to stay tucked in. Anyone have any suggestions? Also, I opted for a magnetic closure instead of chord around a button.
And finally here is the finished purse!
I purchased the main fabric while on vacation in Colorado last year because the lambs were too adorable. This way they are showcased in something I will carry around everywhere with me. The lambs and I are going scuba diving this weekend, so there will not be much sewing going on in my world this weekend.
