So, a friend of mine saw this purse at the store and wanted it only cuter. She of course asked me if I could help her out. I took one look at it and said, "sure" So here we go....
Here is the purse that she wants me to make, only cuter!
The ruffles will be a little tricky but I think that I can handle it. So, in order to make the knowck off we went and got some fabric that she liked and I guessed about the amout we needed but I think that we got about a yard and a half. We still need to get the linning so that is why this is not done yet. Well.... not entirely. There is the fact that we were gone this weekend...
So, I layed the purse down on the fabric and cut the shape out leaving about an inch or two extra for seam allowance. I cut the main purse shape first.
Next, I cut the Base of the purse that goes all the way around it so that it has some depth. This I cut on the fold of the fabric.
I cut the largest ruffle and the shoulder strap off the finished edge so that I had less to serge.
Then I cut the middle ruffle out of only one layer of fabric.
Next the smallest ruffle and then I used some of the length to cut a piece for the center piece to anchor the ruffles in the center. We found an awesome boutton that we are going to add to ours.
I then cut the shape I needed for the center piece, allowing for extra to fold under.
I then serged all the pieces. Now I am just waiting to get the lining so I can copy a couple of the pieces and then start construction. More to come.....
