Last night I got more of this purse stitched together. Today maybe the rest of it will get cut out and stitched together. The purse is for a surprise gift for my neighbor. This is the front and the flap for the purse.
This is the back side of the purse. She loves flowers and I had appliqued them on the denim. IF I make anymore I need to find a better way to get the applique done. My hands from working on the denim are tired. I think I am going to work with the machine applique. The blind hem stitch and I might become good friends.
I am only making the purses for friends and family. I decided the amount of work I wasn't really getting a whole lot of money for my time. So if the machine technique works to my liking I might get more done. Been trying to get in better shape for outside work which is coming soon. My progress is really slow. I need a little warmer weather to walk. I did quite a bit the other day, but the weather changed again. I am being forced to find a way to do this without adding to the National Debt. The gas prices to go walk in an enclosed area is eating into my budget so I need to get out in the fresh air and keep up the effort. It is 34*F out right now and I am sure with the winds we have it is close to 20*F windchill . The air will take your breath away.
