I'm quite excited about this. I've been making for the first time ever in my life a purse with a Burda pattern (Burda Young/fashion pattern #8235)
I've been listening to Librivox audio books today and I adore the ones from Frank L. Baum's masterpiece The Land of Oz so much. Due to the wonderful voice of Paul Harvey. He even does the different voices of the characters. It's so funny. I can't get enough! Here's a link to Librivox's The Wonderful Land of Oz.
Here are the finished results so far - I'm planning to make lots of them. I've used the wonderful vintage repro fabrics I ordered some time ago at www.reprodepot.com.

Here's a little tutorial on how to do it. It's quite easy to do.
Now is a good time to have a nice glass of red wine.
Et voila! Le Purse est finis..
I've got these great ribbons from my mother when she visited me this afternoon. She bought them at a flee market today and I'm very happy with her choice. Great ribbons!
Bye now, and back to my studio working at some more purses. And within a few days the new dolls will arrive at the Digital Garden, stay tuned for those goodies!
And remember: The smaller the purse, the bigger the cash!
