My first post! first post. Maybe. If I can figure out how to attach photos and links, and all this other blog related stuff. Who knew that my learning to "craft" would also lead to learning to become more tech savvy. I am not very computer literate, so this too, will be a challenge.
My first posted project is my Vera Bradley look-a-like quilted handbag that I sewed from a free pattern. I made my 2nd look a like quilted handbag last week, after I destroyed my 1st one. Always trying to "better" myself, I took an omega-3 fish oil capsule to work with me a few weeks back, leaving it in my purse to take it with my lunch. "What IS that smell?" I asked a few hours later, when I suddenly realized the fish oil capsule had burst inside my quilted purse. After multiple attempts at removing the foul odor (I actually ingest this?!?) I admitted defeat and threw it away.

My second attempt is definitely brighter, and was inspired by my oldest daughters' new favorite colors, pink and green. It's not too big, but big enough, and most importantly, doesn't STINK like a week old fish.....

It has external pockets which are great for holding my cellphone and keys, and a few inner pockets as well. The free sewing pattern for the vera bradley look-a-like handbag can be found at this link.

  1. I was on the scal forums and wanted to see your school logo. It really came out nice. SCAL is the best.

    Just wanted to comment on this post. Sorry about your purse. Total bummer. I have to give my dog fish oil so I puncture the capsule and drizzle the oil on her food. Sometimes I get the oil on my fingers and boy does that stuff smell gross! BTW, your new purse is gorgeous!
