Spring Purse - Part 3 (A Finish)

I'm happy to say "It's a Finish"!  If you are new to my blog you will be able to see parts 1 & 2 earlier on the blog. 

I've spent the last couple of evenings hand stitching the base into place and finally the zip.

Front


Back

Pockets and zip
A purse wouldn't be complete without a pocket or two!

Base
The base was stab-stitched to the body of the bag.

I was really pleased with the finish of this base as it wasn't from a pattern and I had to plan the shape and size and was a little worried whether it would fit neatly but it did!

So I'm off out on a walk to enjoy carrying my new purse about!

Hope you have a super weekend.

See you soon!

    1. Thank you for your comments, Deanna, I think I will have to remove the gadget for subscribing and start again! Do you use Google+? I'm wondering whether I should try that?

    1. Thank you, Clare, for your kind comments. Yes, they are mirrors and they are Shisha mirrors (Indian origins) and I don't think I've provided a link anywhere but if anyone wants to try them there are lots of tutorials via Pinterest and Google.
