My Rag Quilt Purse!
Check this out! I haven't sewn for quite some time. I'm guessing my sewing machine is about 25 years old if that gives you any idea of exactly how much I DO sew. :)
BUT, "everyone" seems to be making these Rag Quilt Purses using the Big Shot and the Scallop Square Bigz Clear Die. So... my wonderful sideline Jen demonstrated the Rag Quilt Bag/Purse to us at the April upline meeting. And my equally wonderful sideline Mindy, along with Jen, are going to show us how to make these purses in May. They provided us with a list of items to bring to the class. Alas I didn't have the Scallop Square die. However, my equally wonderful downline Geneva did and she was kind enough to allow me to use hers. Guess what I just ordered today...
Please don't look too closely for flaws, there are several. But it wasn't hard, and it wasn't really all that time consuming. The handle still needs to be placed on the bag, but for now, I have a sample to show. Let me know if YOU want to order the pieces and parts to make this!
