knew I wanted something "different".
I'm learning that you can't force inspiration, so after what seems like hours of going over and over fabric scraps in various combinations and still lacking ideas, I just let it go. One night when just before going to sleep, the design flashed through my mind. I leaped up, sketched out my design, and got to right to work the next day.
Here's what I came up with, and with only a 1" X 2" scrap of fabric left over and to spare!! I even had to scrape to get enough for the fabric florette, but in the end, I think the purse has a sweet, old-fashioned, and even kind of retro look, complete with ruffled lace trim. What do you think?
