Purses

I got on a purse making jag yesterday. I have so many pretty cheerful fabrics that I just felt like making something springlike, and it ended up being these purses. I made one a while back and did OK with the zipper, so thought I would try some more. I'm going to take these to the shop and see if they sell. They are on the small side, about 8 1/2 " wide, so I'm asking 15.00 for the zippered ones, and 10.00 for the other. None have linings, but the edges are zig zagged and look nice. If they sell, I might make some with linings and pockets. The kleenex holders I'm asking 3.00. Prices sound OK?


2 of them I just punted and kind of made up the pattern, but the 3rd I got from here. I made my fabric pieces differently though. Not sure if I like the zipper in the front. Next one I will put it on top, as I got enough for 4 purses from each piece of fabric.

Hey, if nothing else, I'm having fun!!

I love the bags - especially the one using the split 4-patch. I think you are spot-on (no pun with all the polka dots) with your prices. And like you say - at least you are having fun. Anything that doesn't sell - Christmas gifts!

My Husband keeps telling me, "Take a chance and it's not like your life is dependent on a sale, so have fun". With this attitude, I've been surprised and grateful to sell anything. So just do it and you'll learn what works and what doesn't.

Great bags Wilma. I think your prices are more than okay.

I love the middle one - mind you I would snap up any of them if they for sale here at those prices! But I think we pay 4 x the price for fabric here :-(

I love all three bags The patterns are different than any I've seen. I like the zipper there. The colors are great real spring like.
