About Me

My photo
Sewing and cooking are two of my favorite things. In the past, I often found myself searching for pictures and details of projects I have done, without success. So I decided to start documenting my creations. Then my son suggested I add my recipes to the blog so that they are documented also.

Whipped Up This Purse

A few weeks ago my hubby and I decided at the last minute to go to a Pro golf tournament taking place locally.  As I was looking online for tickets I noted that no purses or bags larger than 6"x6" were allowed.  Wow that is really small! I had a few that would fit into that size but they were clutches and I wasn't going to spend a whole day carrying it around. I needed something that would hang over my shoulder.  I knew I had no purse that small but figured I could whip up something with a shoulder strap for the next morning.  I have a slew of 7 inch square blocks made up that will one day become a quilt but no time soon. These blocks already have a backing on so I figured I could pick two, put them together with a zipper and seam it up.  I really had no cord for the strap that matched it so I used uncovered ecru cording and my little shoulder bag was born.  My only supplies needed were 2 quilt blocks, a zipper that I cut to size and cording - all found in my sewing room and a 1/2 hour of my time.

It held my iPhone, change purse and a comb.   It is almost like a little disposable bag but will come in handy another day I am sure. Actually it may be great to use when I go to the occasional casino since I like to carry little with me when I go to one.
