Imagine my excitement opening an email from the Sew Daily Blog showing my purse on the cover!!!
It was pretty darn exciting : )
This purse uses an easy paper piecing technique to make the border.
I used some of my favorite vintage inspired aqua scraps.
The handle and umbrella tip are appliqued.
The back of the purse has a gathered pocket to hold your compact umbrella!
The text print is from Sweetwater and is now out of print. Their new "Mama Said Sew" line has the exact same print with different text. You can find it in a few different colors at Sew Me a Song and Pink Castle Fabrics.
Stay tuned for a give-away tomorrow!
