Pink Pocketbook

When I go fabric shopping, pink is not the first color I am drawn to.  I'm drawn more to the batiks and primary colors.  However, I've looked around lately and found that I have numerous fabrics with pink in them.  So, I decided it's time to use more of them.  Yesterday evening was the day I finally tackled a purse I've been wanting to try.  I learned so much working on this pattern:  Mill House Inn Tote Bag on the Moda Bakeshop site.  Great use of honey buns!

So, here's what I ended up with.  My lining needs trimmed down a little more, it's too big.  But, other than that, I think it turned out pretty good for my second purse.  I may change the button catch though.  I think it may be too much pink polka dot.  You should give the pattern a try.  Now, who to give it to?  Maybe I'll tuck it away for Christmas!

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Looks great! I agree about changing out the button tab...something alittle more subtle would be better.
    IT really is a cute tote. I'll have to hop over there and check it out. I like looking at purses, but haven't made many the inspiration everywhere though.
