Rag Quilt Purse #2

Here is my second rag quilt purse. I think I told you in an earlier post that my husband bought me a new sewing machine for Christmas. Well I finally got time over the weekend to get it out of the box. After spending some time trying to figure out how to make a bobbin and thread machine, I was ready to start sewing.

I worked on this purse Saturday evening and finished it up Sunday evening. It probably took me about 8 hours total (and I am not fast at sewing) - that includes cutting the blocks with my Big Shot, laying everything out and making the flower for the center of the purse.

I think the hardest part of making this purse, for me anyway, was the handles. I even bought some canvas handles to use on this purse but my husband didn't think it would look right and thought the handles should be made out of matching material. Which also meant getting out the iron and ironing board, and I hate to iron. Now I can't wait to start on purse #3.

Thanks for looking,
