Purses, Bags & Totes, Oh MY!

I’m obsessed. Thoroughly.

My friend Carrie showed me a site, thepurlbee.com that has a bunch of fun ideas, plus links to other bloggers that have tutorials, etc. Since then, I’ve tried to look at every link (there are tons) for Christmas ideas. I have been fortunate to find a few purse tutorials, to help me with my quest. I have also had the great fortune to have found a couple that go around to different interior design studios collecting discontinued fabric. I’ve collected quite a bit of it, thankfully finding scraps large enough for bags.

Right: Fabric was also free, I love freebies. The Pleated tote pattern can be found HERE.
