Purse Classes today

I taught two purse classes today. The morning class had 3 students and the evening one had 2. The name of the class is "Choose Your Own Purse". Each student picks a pattern and we make the purse. Most of the time they choose something that I have already made but even if it is new, I have made enough purses that it is usually pretty easy to figure it out.

First is going to be a bright purse.


Next one has a Mola that she is going to applique on the front of her tote bag.


Next we have two beautiful batiks.


This one has a focus fabric of New York fabric and a mottled black for the base.

Lastly, these are beautiful floral fabrics that will make a great purse.

They have a lot of homework to do before the next class. It is in 2 weeks and they have to quilt the base for the purses and we will finish them - hopefully they will walk out with completed purses.

In the past I always taught from one pattern at a time - it is sometimes hard to find enough people who want to make the same pattern. Out of these five, three choose the same pattern and the other two had different patterns. It seems to work out well and we all have fun.

I also teach a "Choose Your Own Jacket" class.

  1. Wish I lived close enough to be in your purse class. Sounds like fun. I love all the fabrics.
