Purse Week!

Before I get into the fun that is Purse Week,  I want to mention that I'll be doing another review for CSNstores.com soon! If you you're not familiar with CSNstores.com, they have over 200 online stores that sell everything from nightstands to art supplies. Like last time, I'll be choosing something I think will be a big hit with the kiddos and maybe something you'll want to put on your Christmas shopping list :)

...............................................................................................................................




Ok, so on to Purse Week. . . I really should have posted about this sooner but I spent pretty much all my free time this week working on my entry. I came across the contest and A Lemon Squeezy Home late Sunday night so I knew I wouldn't have a whole lot of time to come up with something. Crazy me, I decided to whip up a pattern from scratch and it was a learning experience for sure! I've been playing around with the idea of creating a purse pattern for my shop and this was sort of a trial version. Still lots more work to be done but I'm happy with what I ended up with.






Anywho, if you are just now finding out about Purse Week, make sure to head over to A Lemon Squeezy Home for lots of purse inspired tutorials. Also, if you've sewn a purse, tote, or clutch since July 1st of this year, you can enter it! You have til midnight (MST) tonight :) To see all of the fabulous entries, head over to the Flickr pool here.


Have a great weekend!

  12. The clutch looks great! The lining is the perfect color. All of the detail is kind of mindbending; what patience you have!

  21. did you ever publish the pattern for this clutch? There is not another one on the market like it that I have found. I would love to be able to make one for my daughter who at 16 is just now becoming interested in wearing dresses again. This is very understated and classy!
