Purses that match....

You may remember that I made this cute little bag a little while ago. I have another in the pipeline, I really like the delicate floral fabric and the beige linen feel fabric too. I felt it needed an addition so...

Well, I also cut out two of my favourite purses in this fabric too. Now, I decided to go back to my smaller size for this purse so that is would not take up too much room but would still be functional.
I decided to use both of the fabrics. The top of the front pocket is bound with some of the beige fabric with the floral fabric playing the main feature.This is the back of the same purse. The lining is a combination of the beige, floral and crisp white cotton.


But, you know me I did not stop there oh No!! Made this one too...

It is virtually the same except that I have added the loop and clip.. This one is lined in white cotton only and has a floral back like the first purse. I have enough fabric to make another bag which I am going to try and add some external pockets as well as the zip pocket. I will have to see how that goes for too much bulk at the front of the bag but you do not know until you try it do you? I have really enjoyed making these, especially the bags as I have developed them myself. My husband thinks that I should do a PDF pattern and instructions for the bag but I am not sure about that yet. I shall be listing the two bags and purses at the weekend, probably one set in each shop. Would anyone rather have BUY NOW buttons on my blog? I can sort of do this , you still need pay pal or I will except a check but it will have to clear before goods are sent, just like Ebay, but I realise that not everyone has a pay pal account. Let me know what you think.

Well Mr Tickle is coming along nicely and I am now off to paper mache his legs to his feet! Hubby and Sophie are in charge of body and arms and Sophie will be the main painter hopefully on Sunday.

Take care

The bag is gorgeous - stylish. I really like what you've done with the strap. Very nice. The matching pouch is a lovely idea. Makes the bag seem extra special. I like the idea of producing a PDF pattern. I've certainly bought one or two patterns that have been done like this from etsy. I like the 'instant' bit of the process. "Want a pattern - have a pattern" Lots of crafters are doing this kind of thing and you are starting from a position where folk can see from your blog that you know what you're doing.... ie they'll know that it's a good thing to do. I'd say try it - I'm sure you'll be pleasantly surprised by the response.

I just love the bag and matching purse - really pretty but not horrible sicky-pretty (if you know what I mean). More power to your elbow on the PDF question. x
