Made a NEW PURSE - Pink and Black

I finished making another purse!!  There are a few things that I would do differently if I did it all over again - but all and all - I'm pleased enough with it to start using it!

There were a couple of "FIRSTS" on this project again for me!  So that's good - I adding more techniques to my  "Learn to Sew Stuff" LIST!  I made my own piping for the first time and of course sewed the piping to my project!  Also -- this is my first purse to make using the "Drop In Liner" method.  I dropped the liner inside the purse outer shell and then put the binding on the top.

Here are a couple of pictures

Now I gotta make the wallet and card holder etc stuff to match  (like I did with the Olive and Purple purse)   You know -- this is all Mommy and Liz's fault!!!!!  They are the ones that got me all wrapped up in sewing stuff!!  I used to only QUILT - that's it!  Now I'm always sewing something new - and it takes me a long time because I am not a VETERAN SEAMSTRESS  LOL  But I have to admit -- I am having a good time learning all this new stuff  :)

Liz's Sew A Long - June - Thread Case

Ok - our assignment for June on Liz's Sew-A-Long is THREAD CASES!!!  To see all of Liz's monthly assignments and all the participants entries - go to Liz's blog  (MOMENTS)

Again - Mommy and worked together on ours! We both chose to use the coordinating fabric of our sewing TOTES (I think that was February's assignment) ...... So these would match our "traveling sewing stuff" not our sewing ROOM themes.

We both made both sizes of this pattern (Go to Susan Sews blog to see Mommy's set). I finished my smaller one over at Mommy's house yesterday and then finished up my big one at home today!

This is the big one and the small one closed
Obviously - here they are opened up  :)
This is the big one opened up
This is Mommy's ABBY - Mommy came over today while I was finishing up my big one!   Abby LIKES to pose for pictures!! It's funny when you are taking a picture of something - she always tries to get in the picture!!!!  So adorable!!  She is the softest little doggie too - pictures dont do her enough justice! She's this sweet, super soft, loves to cuddle pile of fuzz that people cant get enough of...... seriously  :)
This is Mommy's set!  HER STUFF ALWAYS...... ALWAYS - comes out better than mine!!  Same pattern - same instructions - and I even have her helping me step by step  - AND HER STUFF ALWAYS COMES OUT BETTER THAN MINE !!?!?!?!?!!  LOL  She's been sewing for a loooong time - so I guess it's understandable!  :)

THANKS AGAIN to Liz for letting me participate in her monthly Sew-A-Long - and Thanks to Mommy as always for helping me learn a new project!!!

Big Hugs everyone!
