Purse # 2

Here is the second purse.  The second purse is made by Green Bee.  I have never made anything from either one of these pattern companies before.  Green Bee is not for the beginner where I feel Noddle-head is.  Instructions...which you know are important to me...seemed to be a little clearer on the Noodle-head pattern.  Upon looking at both blogs, I was impressed with both designers and their written word, ideas, and designs.  Make sure that you take a look at both!  Here is the second purse:

You will notice that there is only one pocket on the inside, but outer sides each have a small pocket.

And here is the pattern:

So which one do you like best??

New Purse

I was hired by the shop where I used to work to make a couple of purses for them.  The first one, by Noodle-head, was fast, easy, and fun to make....  I will definitely be making more of this bag.  The second purse took a little more time...but turned out quite cute due to the fabric that had been picked to make it out of.  Here is a picture of the first purse:

The zipper application was quite  different than I had ever done before and I really liked it!  Here is the pattern:

I'll share the other purse tomorrow!  Loving to sew...Debbie
