Another Handmade Handbag

Today I finished the floral summer handbag that I was making for my birthday cruise.  It’s only a month late!  I think Linda of Friendship Tea had the right idea.  She said  “You need to schedule another cruise so you can use your purse.  Don’t you love how the female mind works.”  I like that and I’m already dreaming of a Mediterranean cruise next April.

P5181516I thought the lilies on this fabric were quite pretty and made sure to feature one on the front pocket of the handbag.

P5181517The ties on each side really enhance the shape of this bag.

P5181515With ten inside pockets, I can organize a lot of stuff.  There is a magnetic closure to keep it securely closed.



Now that I’ve finished this project, I can get started on the shaggy- raggy baby quilt for my first granddaughter.  Maybe if I start now, it will be ready for Christmas.

Wow....what a perfect job you've done on your bag. A girlie just cannot have too many pockets, can she? :-)

Warm blessings,

What a beautiful bag, just perfect for a Mediterranean cruise. You will love that cruise, the only one I have ever been on.

Very nice! I've never made a bag that is that elaborate, and I must say that I am intemidated by the thought. The pockets inside will be especially useful, I'm sure.

Oh, I love this bag! You've done an outstanding job. The flower almost looks real! I love cruises and hope you can go on another one really soon.
Be a sweetie and thanks for popping in to see me.
