I really do. I guess I just love to craft and make stuff.
This is my latest creation. A quilted handbag. With a coordinated little zippered clutch. I have been working on and off on this set for a couple weeks.
I showed you my fabric pull three weeks ago. Remember? I used all of these except the scripted fabric on the left and the avocado polka dots.
From That to This…
The handbag is quilted, lined, has one small inside pocket, has a swivel hook on the inside to hang keys from. Handles are dark brown wood. With magnetic closure. You can see the hardware and buttons I used here in this photo.

Zippered bag was made from the same fabric pull plus leftover strips from the handbag. I am so drawn to these little bags. I plan to make lots more.
How cute is this orange kitty cat zipper pull!!
It came from MiMi’s Etsy shop. She has them in lots of colors.
I didn’t have a pattern for either. Just worked from the vision in my head. Colors are green, rust and peach.
Handbag measures 15″ across the top, 10 1/2″ along the bottom, 11 1/4″ height, 4″ width. From handle to bottom: 17 3/4″. Zippered bag measures 10″ by 7″.
I am 67, and Lord willing, I hope to be around long enough to make thousands more items.
Have a great Memorial Day!!
