All done!!

Square Dancing Purse comes to an end, thank goodness.

Never before have I spent as much time sewing on a patternless simple item. So glad to be finished. I am somewhat happy with the outcome. I think the ruffle could have been a tad bit shorter but it is what it is.  I am not going to make any changes. Janome is off for the day, resting up. In fact, I plan to have a little bonfire party with my “rectangle.” 🙂

Here’s out it turned out.

Supplies used to make this purse:

  • 1 yard denim
  • 1 yard checkered gingham
  • 1 yard interfacing
  • 1 decorative button
  • red thread
  • navy thread

One good thing from making this purse is that I am bonding with my sewing machine. Learning my way around. Though still having to look up stuff in the Instructor’s Manual. Even simple stuff. BUT the more I sew, the better I get. I just know it.

Next up…. something from a store bought PATTERN!!

    That purse is really cute! If you make another one, just make the ruffle smaller/shorter.
